After commenting out fchmod in config.c, I get similar results.

At first glance, t0050 seems to fail because the unicode file
name patches are still missing.

t4041 tries to pass ISO-8859-1 encoded bytes on the command line,
which simply doesn't work on Windows (all OS APIs 'talk' UTF-16).
We have a fix for this in the msysgit fork [1] (but unfortunately
in another branch, so Stepan couldn't know the patch is related).

I suspect the other failures also fall in these two categories.
