Right, you can. And the bug only appears on Windows, not on any other.
It is a bug in the texlua wrapper we use.

ARAGLIN (n. archaic)
A medieval practical joke played by young squires on a knight aspirant
the afternoon he is due to start his vigil. As the knight arrives at
the castle the squires attempt to raise the drawbridge very suddenly
as the knight and his charger step on to it.
