It's unfortunately not nearly as rare as you would hope. However, it is
likely that these cases aren't widely seen as I have been working on
marking broken tests as expect_broken over the last few months.

Only recently (for roughly a month now, IIRC) has Windows been a
mandatory-green platform and it took a significant amount of effort and
several false-starts to get to this point.
