I am going through and running the test suite on various platforms.
Overall everything looks good.

But I am seeing a set of errors in frontend/tests/test_process.py

When run using iptest on Vista, but only when iptest is called through
its link in the Start Menu (you will have to build a .exe installer
and install IPython that way), test_kill and test_capture_out both
give an error related to permissions.  The odd thing is that these
tests pass when iptest is called from the command line.  PITA.

For now, I have simply put @skip decorators on these tests.  I will
file a bug report on these as well.  Can you look into this at some
