[New-bugs-announce] [issue9513] test_multiprocessing skipped on Windows

New submission from Brian Curtin <curtin at acm.org>:

I just realized test_multiprocessing is being skipped on Windows because a few relative imports of _multiprocessing are failing in win32 specific code blocks. Attached is a trivial patch to remove the relative import, enabling the tests to run and succeed on both dev and installed environments.

Jesse: There don't appear to be any side effects here, but I get the feeling I might be overlooking some reason this might have been done.
