I don't think any of our Unix buildbots runs in our Windows service :)

The diversity of errors we get is a bit disturbing: in the Linux man
pages, ENOENT is mentioned as a glibc extension (“There was no
corresponding entry in the utmp-file”)  but EINVAL is not mentioned at
all; also, returning NULL without setting errno is not a possibility in
the POSIX spec.
