I can do the verbose option -- I'll start using it. It seems to fail
about half the time, and I did not know how to run them singly on
Windows (I think I do now thanks to Brane's email), so I've only run
them a few times a week.

Yes, it could be another symptom of the filesystem race, I suppose. I
haven't looked closely at the working copy and repo, but status and log
commands work fine and show that the commit seemed to work fine. It
would help if I understood better what the test failure was saying -- is
it the working copy that does not match what was expected or is it the
output from stdout or something else?
