This failure is almost certainly due to the change in backslash-newline
handling, since misc/general3 is where I added all my testing.

I'm sort of surprised you only got one failure here; there are a lot of
different backslash-newline tests.

In what way were they incorrectly created?

Don't know about these.

I don't think Windows supports the -l option so I doubt that this test
should even be invoked.

I've make some changes (checked in just tonight) that tries to handle
environment variables more safely than previous versions, just in case
some variables are leaking from test to test (I don't know if Windows
allows that to happen).
