Do you have any ideas what's caused this?!? Is this caused by the several ways WS is build on different Unix platforms - or are there still just bugs in the current test mechanism?
It might be possible to configure the Windows builder to download
tarballs and try to build them.  I'll take a look.
If that would be possible it'll hopefully stop the current sad situation, that's probably much easier than building a separate Win32 tarball.
Although the downloaded tarballs might even be several hours "old" I 
don't think it would matter a lot if the Win32 buildbot would be a few 
hours behind "official schedule" in this regard - checking tarballs a 
few hours old is by far *a lot better* than not checking at all :-)
