I’ll feed this back to twisted as a bug.

Hi Adam,
I guess this problem is more in the twisted framework. It would be wise to rather submit or look for similar bug in their own tracker:

As you are on windows 10, did you try to run Buildbot in a linux bash shell<https://www.howtogeek.com/249966/how-to-install-and-use-the-linux-bash-shell-on-windows-10/>?

Frankly there are quite few windows users, inside the buildbot and twisted community, and it is quite hard to claim a strong windows support without them. Its a bit of a chicken and the egg problem, as we have few windows, users, we have even less windows contributions.
Perhaps linux bash shell is the solution for us to better support windows.
