Another strangeness in the behaviour here:

  nmake test

hangs in various Module-Build tests.


  nmake test TEST_FILES=..\cpan\Module-Build\t\*.t

runs the Module-Build tests without a problem.

  nmake test TEST_FILES="base/*.t ../cpan/Module-Build/t/*.t"

hangs in perl_mb_opt.t, as does:

  cd ../t
  .\perl harness base/cond.t ../cpan/Module-Build/t/perl_mb_opt.t
