Hmmm.  There are many problems in that log, but the majority of the failures
appear to be “error: can't start new thread”.  Given the rather large number of
tests reported to be leaking threads we're probably hitting some limitations on
numbers of allowed threads on XP.  Time to spend more effort doing something
about the number of threads the test suite uses.  Although possibly --parallel
might be a workaround?

Thanks for the data.
