It sounds like antivirus software may cause problems with Windows
builds. That's useful information. Could you please document the
specifics on the wiki?

Right now, I don't see anything mentioning "anti", "virus",
"symantec", or "norton" on that page, so it's quite possible that the
next person is going to run into the same problems you did. Let's nip
that one problem in the bud.
