I was under the impression that the failure in the tests discussed here was the
previously discussed issue with the lack of granularity of the clock under
Windows causing the txn_names_are_not_reused() test to fail, but after looking
at the logs, the two failures are not directly related to the clock:

FAIL: fs-test.exe 22: check old revisions
FAIL: fs-test.exe 28: test svn_fs_check_related

The new txn txn_names_are_not_reused() test succeeded in this run:


PASS: fs-test.exe 6: check that transaction names are not reused

In this older run from r25511, after the txn commits, but before the iconv
change, tests #22 and #28 were passing:


There's a check I added in trivial_transaction() to validate that transaction
names contain only the ASCII characters, so the txn names is only ASCII.

How does removing iconv() change any of these things?

So the longer transaction names may be causing a problem, but why would removing
iconv support trigger that when the longer names did previously work? Backing
out the transaction changes will result in shorter transaction names and may
resolve this issue, but I'm thinking it may not be the real fix for the issue.

I suggest that the issue with the Windows clock is a different issue than this
one and we should see why removing iconv broke the tests.
