For what it's worth, I've just run a wintest, using this code, and while
it fails on some DRS things (which I need to look into), it certainly
doesn't crash like this.

Unlike make test, wintest runs as real root, and does real UID changing
etc, so this isn't a generic issue just being masked by our test
