I'm seeing this test script failing on the pu branch as a result of this
commit when building on Cygwin.  Specifically, the test fails at
9d45e1ca4 ("Merge branch 'bw/oidmap-autoinit' into pu", 2017-12-28), and
bisecting points the blame at 2ee0c785a ("wildmatch test: create & test
files on disk in addition to in-memory", 2017-12-25).

I've copied the verbose error output for the first error below, and
uploaded the full output, including verbose and trace output for the
unexpectedly failing tests, at [0].  (With 42 failures among 1512 tests,
there's a lot of it, so I didn't want to include it in an email.)

I'm digging into the failures myself now, but wanted to report the
problem in the name of getting more eyes on it.
