I had a strange one-time test failure (different from the one I
reported in [1], which I have already for a long time), when running
the tests on my Win XP yesterday. It only happened the first time when
I ran the test suite (local x fsfs):

FAIL: depth_tests.py 18: commit property mods only, using --depth=empty

(see fails.log in attachment)

After this failure, I repeated the depth_tests (same setup) a half
dozen times, and they always succeeded. I also reran the entire suite,
no problem.

So that worries me a little bit. I wasn't doing anything special
during the failing test run (and even so, that shouldn't really
matter). Antivirus wasn't running (AV was responsible for some strange
test failures on my system in the past). But it did happen.

Anyway, since I can't reproduce, and I'm still struggling a bit with
getting my build/test environment up to par, I'm not going to veto or
anything (and there are already 3 Windows signatures). But if anyone
else sees this, it's at least an extra data point.

Any hypotheses for explaining this one-time glitch are also appreciated :-).
