The build does not fail on my or other committers' machines.  It must be
something specific to whats happening in Windows1.  Sorry if it sounds like
we are blaming you.  We are just trying to troubleshoot and are running
blind here.

We welcome the addition of a new windows slave, no doubt.  Which is why we
want to fix Windows1 first.  Otherwise it will lead to more variables to
troubleshoot.

On that note, perhaps you can image windows1 and create windows2 as a clone
of it?
