Thanks for the follow-up.  This should now be in plain text.

Here are the requested details about my specific setup.  It is a
standard MinGW install (mingw-get-inst-20110211.exe) using the
pre-packaged repository catalogs and MSYS.

Shell: GNU bash, version 3.1.17(1)-release (i686-pc-msys)
Directory Information:
 - I originally executed "make check" in the "tests" directory, but
after reading your question, I also executed in the project parent
directory (binaryio) and it fails in the same manner
 - 50GB NTFS partition on a local SATA drive

A few other details that might be useful:

GCC: gcc version 4.5.2 (GCC) [Target: mingw32]
LD: GNU ld (GNU Binutils) 2.21
Make: GNU Make 3.81 (i686-pc-msys)
MinGW version from _mingw.h: 3.18

Project layout:

 - lib
 - m4
 - tests

When you write to a mailing list, such as bug-gnulib, please always
plain-text mails, not HTML mails. There must be a switch in your mail
to ensure this.

Thanks for the details. Can you please give more details:
 - What shell were you using? Cygwin bash or MSYS or else?
 - The directory in which you executed the "make check", on which kind
 file system was it? NTFS of a local disk? VFAT on a local disk? Remote
 mounted via CIFS (SMB)? Or else?

I'm asking because obviously, since the test exists for 4 years, we
would have
noticed if it was failing on _all_ Windows XP systems. So something is
particular on your system.
