Fix a recent Windows regression, and two long-standing Windows bugs. Also, get CI running on Windows, so these things are less likely in the future.

Please also be aware that the “Windows Fixes” in 6.11.1 broke the macOS and *nix platforms.
@isaacs Any idea on what a fix for 6.11.3 would look like and/or when could we expect that to ship?
Should be fixed in this Tuesday’s release.
