On my Windows buildbots it appears as if this change started creating
new debug RTL pop-up windows that my AutoIt script wasn't expecting,
so it probably affected the build step in some subsequent builds too
since the dialogs kept the python_d process live.

I've reset those dialogs and updated my script to automatically
acknowledge these dialogs too going forward, but failures prior to this
point may not be true failures but just fallout from the prior issue.
