Wait, did I say "reproducible"? Gah, I had it once, then reproduced it
shortly after (it's still in my scrollback history), then sent this
mail, and now I can't reproduce it anymore :-(. I've tried at least 20
more times ... This it not fun.

What has changed between the fails and now?
- Ran the testsuite for 1.7.20 over ra_serf (all successful).
- Finished dinner.
- Drove kid to basketball training.
- Stopped Apache 2.4.12 which was still running (standalone, separate
console window).
- Closed another VS2013 Command Prompt (in which I had tested 1.8.20).
It didn't respond to "exit", so I closed it.
- Then tried to run "python win-tests.py -c release -u svn://localhost
-t svndumpfilter#2 R:\test" again, but now it consistently succeeds.

Sigh. Nothing relevant I guess ...
