Thanks for the report. Can you provide a complete recipe in the form
of shell command to make this happen so others can reproduce the
behavior? Doing so will help track down the issue. Also, since this is
Windows, do the cases of the filenames in the referenced commit match
the cases actually on the filesystem (and have the cases changed
between commits)?
