OK, I'll add a suppression for that.

BTW tests/win.c seems pretty racy.  It fails strangely with warn+heap
and differently strangely under valgrind.  Under Valgrind, I bet the test is
just bad at running really slowly.  No idea why it fails with warn+heap,
which doesn't seem too slow.

I'm not so worried about those, a leak's not as bad as a wild pointer, and
it's probably just a missing free or close or something in the test code.
But thanks for looking.
