FWIW I had a quick look through the history of Windows commit builds on 
VSTS. There last three failures were:
  * test_subprocess getting wedged and the build timed out (surprisingly 
gracefully though, it sent a Ctrl+C to the app so we still got all the 
  * Tcl/tk and/or OpenSSL build got stuck (this was on 3.6 - we don't 
build these every time as of 3.7)
  * test_asyncio issues

Since the last of those issue, there have been 50-ish successful builds. 
(Note that I looked at commit builds, not PR builds, so I wouldn't have 
to wade through every single PR to see if it was a genuine bug.)

You can review the history here:

(both commits and PRs right now, still undecided how to best make use of 
this run, as we don't seem to report coverage stats anywhere?)
