I didn't try this actual test on windows because I don't have
easy access to windows. However ....

That gets complicated. I'm on Linux, cross compiling to windows
using the mingw cross compiler and running the test suite on
wine. One of the test programs was failing under wine but it did
pass on windows xp. I tracked it down to this incorrect behaviour
of the feof function.

Sure. I'll bang on this some more.
