Given the rather small number of Windows machines in the buildfarm,
I'd really like them all to be on the same page about what's valid
and what isn't.  Having to wait ~24 hours to find out if they're
all happy with something isn't my idea of a good time.  In any case,
as long as we have discrepancies between them, I'm not going to be
entirely convinced that any of them are telling the full truth.

I'm going to go remove that switch and see if brolga starts failing.
If it does, I'll be satisfied that we understand the issues here.
