Uh, but that piece of code you're referring to is from the bulidfarm
code, right? Isn't it the same?

Non-Vista MSVC boxes seem to pass fine (mastodon and skylark, for
example - skylark fails on something completely different, not fully
investigated yet, but looks to be a buildfarm problem rather than a
backend one), so I don't think it's the MSVC procedure alone that's the
cause of it.
