As the patch submitter, I tested on Windows 2008 R2 as well as cursorily
testing on a couple flavors of Debian to be sure the aggregate changes
didn't create collateral issues.  I'm quite sure there are 43 tests on
Windows 2008, Vista and 7 variants.  Indeed I hadn't tested on an earlier
version of Windows and 40 does appear to be the correct number on those
platforms.  I appreciate Father C's catching this.  Next time around when
addressing win32 platform issues, I'll make sure to test on complementary
Windows flavors to assure sanity.
