5.18 maint backport is also a possibility since this is a regression for 
a feature nobody knew existed, except for probably demerphq (who wrote 
IIRC) and he doesnt use Windows anymore. But first figuring out why the 
George smoker failed is required. Steve Hay, Tony, can you 2 trying 
building Win32 Perl and see what happens? There arent any active Win32 
porters other than me, Hay and Cook AFAIK.
