I am surprised if it is Windows specific, it seems to be caused by the
following change:

2001-11-03  Richard M. Stallman  <address@hidden>

        * startup.el (fancy-splash-tail): Explain how to recover
        from a crash, if there was a crash.
        (command-line-1): Reorganize display of startup screen,
        to simplify the logic.  Use a temp buffer for it.

IIRC, there was a bug report about lisp-interaction-mode's syntax
highlighting interfering with the display of the splash screen, and
the above was the fix for it.
