That's odd.. it seems like some basic twisted functionality is just plain
failing. Does the Twisted test suite pass?

You might need to run both the tests and twistd itself under a different
reactor, as I think windows doesn't really offer the services needed by the
default one (which uses select()). Try adding "--reactor=win32" or
"--reactor=iocp" to the trial and twistd command lines. You shouldn't need
the extra option for running mktap, as that doesn't involve the reactor..
only for running the .tap file that it creates.

Cory Dodt is running the win32 buildslave for the Twisted buildbot
installation.. perhaps he could mention how he's got that slave set up.

hope that helps,
