Unrelated to what you are fixing, but this test also needs factoring into
w32-safe characters, so we might as well do it now; see msg00044.html

OK, let's do it in a separate commit.

I an attempt to test my patch on a Windows XP machine running latest Cygwin packages, I stumbled on the following oddity during:

$ autoreconf -vi && ./configure -C && make check TESTSUITEFLAGS='-d 5 28 119'
[...] error: Autoconf version 2.57 or higher is required the top level
autom4te: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 63
make[2]: *** [testsuite] Error 63
make[2]: Leaving directory `/tmp/ac/tests'

$ for i in autoconf automake libtool m4; do $i --version | sed q; done
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.61
automake (GNU automake) 1.10 (GNU libtool) 1.5.23a (1.1220.2.412 2006/10/13 14:13:30)
