As I said on the CPAN ticket (#I dont have off hand) over this issue, 
you need 100% CPU for it to fail on windows. Preferably Perl building or 
smoking in a tab in the background. I have 2 cores, Perl building in 
another console in background will make it fail 90% of the time for me, 
vs 5% of the time at idle.
