I'll modify (already have now, just have to re-run the tests) the unit 
test.  The unit test wasn't failing in Windows the way it was written, 
but it was always failing for me outside of the unit test.  Now I have 
it passing outside of the unit test with this below change in Windows, 
just have to make sure it passes inside unit test.  If all OK, I will 
submit another commit.
