There are bugs in the tests, unfortunately.  For example, these failures:

> -tests/shellpath.c: 10 tests executed, 0 marked as todo, 0 failures.
> +tests/shellpath.c: 10 tests executed, 0 marked as todo, 4 failures.

There's a bug in that test, it succeeds the first time run on Windows, but
fails subsequently because it attempts to delete a non-empty directory. 
(That's my fault, I wrote that test.)

Report the failing tests here.  It would help if you could report the
actual failures, not just the number of failures.  Then keep bugging us
till someone fixes them (or, submit patches that fix the tests ;) )
