So in other words, it is repeatable only for the moment.

And while it is you may want to try and nail it.

If you want instead to sweep it under the rug, and simply hope it does not reappear, you

That might get you by, until somebody has time to look at it in greater detail.

Some things I would suggest:

compare the output of cmake (i.e. makefiles) on between linux and windows.

especially wrt to this make target.

Base on those results:
