[Python-Dev] Windows 10 build agent failures

Just kind of "looking around" at stuff I can help with, and I noticed a few
days ago that Windows 10 AMD64 builds of Python 3.6/3.7/3.x are generally

It seems like the failures started April 16th around 1am per BuildBot and
went from consistently passing to consistently failing.  The errors appear
to be timeouts; the test runs are going over 15 minutes.

I can run the tests locally and things seem fine.

The one thing which seems to have changed is, under the "10 slowest tests"
header, test_io has shot up in terms of time to complete:

3.6: 2 min 13 sec
to 9 min 25 sec
3.7: 2 min 10 sec
to 9 min 26 sec
3.x: 3 min 39 sec
to 9 min 17 sec

Locally this test suite runs in around 36 seconds.  I see no real change
between running one of the last "good" changesets versus the current head
of master.  I'm suspecting an issue on the build agent perhaps?  Thoughts?

Best Regards,
