Description Justin Schuh 2012-04-18 13:58:24 PDT
Windows 8 has gotten much more aggressive about rebasing DLLs, so forking child processes fails (generally at least once per build attempt). Since we spawn lots of child processes, this usually causes builds to fail.

This patch is a bit of a hack, but it doesn't seem overly egregious to simply make compiling on win8 work. And anything more significant would be extremely invasive.
