That is in the log:

TerminateProcess failed: 5

where 5 is ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED. Now, *why* the system is refusing to
terminate the process is difficult to say. It's a general Windows
problem: the system doesn't support forced process termination in a
reliable manner.

In any case, Trent seems to have fixed the problem.

Do you have a specific one in mind? The ones truncating size_t/ssize_t
should only matter when you actually do have data larger than 2GiB.
