First of all, are you joining an IPv4 multicast group or an IPv6 one?

If it is IPv4, the priority for your issue has just dropped to the floor. I 
won't debug IPv4 multicast on Windows, on principle.

If it is IPv6, I'll do it.

I don't know.

I've just asked Andy to do it. If he doesn't do it, you can submit the fix

Debug and submit your patch, if this one doesn't do it.

I will review IPv4 patches, but I will not lift a finger to test them.
