The win32 smoke-me & maint smokers were killed.  I think sometimes a 
test's watchdog triggers and it process kills too much, taking out the 
smoker as well.

My current smoke-me code puts a timestamp at the top of the status pages 
so you can see if the status file is stale, but the Win32 code is a little 
behind and lacks that.

I've updated the smoke-me code to refuse to smoke anything with a commit 
date over two weeks old, to avoid problems if the state is ever corrupted 
again.  I'm also tracking state directly instead of using whether the git 
repo local branch SHA is the same as the remote branch SHA.  (Which had 
other undesireable side-effects, so good to stop doing that regardless.)

I restarted the Linux smokers that were idle and will restart the rest 
tomorrow and update the Windows smoker.
