Although this still does not teach us why the test failed on Windows and 
what is solved by adding the wrapper method, it does suggest that indeed 
the runtime behaviour will not be affected by removing the wrapper method.

The unit test might. To be honest, I did not run unit tests on Windows. 
Maybe by doing this, it might just tell us exactly what is accomplished 
with the wrapper method.
