This thread sort of died out ... would there be any objections to
restoring the -n option in the buildbot test.bat file for Windows

I just went through clearing a ton of popups again on my build slave,
but in the end had to again manually kill off all the individual
python_d processes, as the popups just seemed to keep getting created

I don't know why they are happening so frequently now when there was a
reasonable period when they weren't an issue (something about new I/O
support in 3.x perhaps?), but without preventing them it seems the
Windows build slaves are going to become (if not already) quite a bit
less useful.  Don't know about anyone else's but I can't watch mine
