[perl #109668] [META] Needing Win32 attention

This is a meta-ticket to tag issues in the perl core which need attention on

It's for keeping track of outstanding problems which need manual inspection
and correction on Win32, rather than simply test failures which can be
resolved by inspecting the diagnostics in automatic smoker logs and
testing potential fixes by pushing to a smoke-me branch. The intent is that
things that have stalled, or things that are obviously "hard" belong here,
not that every Win32 ticket is attached and then closed.

In particular:

* Problems that need investigation at the C level in a debugger
* Problems involving the Win32 API

which the vast majority of core committers and active contributors can't
resolve because they have neither access nor the domain knowledge.

That list probably isn't exhaustive.
