[Python-Dev] Test failures under Windows?

Revision 70843.
I don't know when this crept in.  I didn't go and check if it applies to other branches too.

Also, I'm sorry for just checking this in witout warning.  But I had just spent what amounts to a full day tracking this down which was tricky because it happens in a subprocess and those are hard to debug on windows.  My eagerness got the best of me.

But again, it shows how useful assertions can be and why we ought not to disable them.

Does it need to be backported? I wonder when that was introduced.
Also, what CL was it so I can review it?
