Fixed that already for WinXP.  No current failures in the -uall test
suite.  Is there a bug report for this ME problem?  Exactly how does
it fail?  Does it work if you force the test to take the time.sleep()
path instead of the os.utime() path?  Is posixmodule.c's posix_utime()
taking the utime() or _wutime() path on ME?  If the latter, does it
work if you force it to take the utime() path instead?  MS docs claim
utime() and _wutime() work "under Windows 98/Me and Windows
NT/2000/XP", but they could be lying:


That link has a wonderful C example:  if you study the sample output,
it shows that the sample code they ran had no visible effect <wink>.
