This is the thing that is bugging me most. I hate that the tests
aren't running. I hope someone else who is interested in getting
these bindings built for Windows jumps in and helps us out.

The patch looks good (eyeballs only, I haven't tried it yet). While I
find the notion of keeping all the Windows service related stuff in a
single file appealling, I'm not sure I like the idea of creating and
destroying the Windows Service for every test. Perhaps we could move
the creation of the Service to when util.rb is loaded, then remove the
service at_exit? That way we'd only have to start and stop the
service for each test?

I happened to have the win32-service gem installed on my system, so I
used it. However, I think we should consider carefully whether or not
we want to create a dependency on it. The code would be a good deal
uglier, but what we are using it for could be accomplished by shelling
out to the "sc" and "net start|stop" commands.

I think we're getting close on that one.

Looking at http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.advanced.reposurls.html
make me think that it should either include a node name or a third
slash, but truely I am no expert.

Thanks for letting me help out a little.
