"Something went wrong" here on Windows.  The Windows buildbot slaves
other than mine eventually died with:


command timed out: 1200 seconds without output

I was working on my box at the time, and it became dramatically
unusable:  took about two minutes just to swap enough of the OS back
in to _bring up_ Task Manager to see what was going on.  The Python
test process was close to 2GB in size, and of course the box was
swapping madly.  So I killed python_d.exe and waited to see how the
other buildbots fared.  Sure appears to be a Windows-specific problem
-- or maybe all the Linux boxes come with a terabyte of RAM these days

I'll take a peek later, but won't be disappointed if someone else
figures it out first.
