I had not seen that failure before, but it is troubling.  For
AppVeyor, it looks like we might be able to get around it by using the
`cache` feature (which we should probably do anyway), but if that
failure happens routinely otherwise, we may have to completely rethink
the approach I've taken in https://bugs.python.org/issue30450
