That's one issue with the Rubinius specs; nobody's developing Rubinius
on Windows, so those tests are probably *never* being run there.
On JRuby, I know we have at least one core dev on Windows, but we're not
a whole lot better. The community helps though, at least for reporting
lots of Windows bugs none of us want to fix.
