Aargh!  The Windows build is broken again.
This time it’s the testsuite.  It seems to be trying to run the test in a temp directory, and failing to find the directory.
Thomie, could this be something to do with your work on the testsuite?
Please fix!  Or tell me what to revert.    It leaves me stuck.
