Not screening this one until Ganesh gives okay. Saw this when I looked at
the test scripts for 'darcs test' that you pointed me to.

  * tests: eliminate two windows checks
  I think we /can/ run tests on windows. And if not, this should be part of

Sorry for the delay with this one. The two tests fail on Windows
with this change.

For issue538, it's probably because a test script
can't be a shell script. Even though the test harness uses shell
scripts, darcs itself just invokes things as native tools.

For trackdown-bisect I think it's the same thing in that the
test-cmd is 'grep', and the native one on Windows doesn't behave
like the Unix one.

We should at least just use abort_windows for these though.
