[ fixed several on Windows - but not sure if these were the ones,
or different; should we turn it on again ?
AI: try make check again on Windows build-slaves (please) (Norbert) ;-)
gerrit builds are still failing cli_ure / locking bug (Miklos)
but un-related to the tests (Michael S)
climaker / linker / compiler related to .Net (Michael S)
