Windows error codes I guess.

Unfortunately I'm one of those people who never, ever managed to get a
useful backtrace out of GDB on Windows. The only person I've heard of
who actually managed to do it enough to document it was Merlin.

It was killed, but I started with some of the sh.exe's before I saw that
dt_test.exe was running. I've just killed dt_test.exe (and nothing else)
on Snake and Bandicoot, so you should see a new set of results for both.
