On Windows the restore_binary method fails silently ont he following lines:
> shutil.rmtree(self._folder, True)
> shutil.move(self._backup_folder, self._folder)

"rmtree" fails to delete the whole folder, then
"move" moves the _backup_folder into _folder (instead of renaming itself to it).

We then silently fail to run the DirectUpdate test (we miss the firefox build in the correct location).
More investigation info can be found here: https://github.com/mozilla/mozmill-ci/issues/223

Such a failure should raise an exception and not yield to a successful report.

Can we call this timeout or max_time rather than done, which sounds more like a success boolean.

Jenkins console included the following, indicating three failed attempts to remove the temporary folder, before eventually succeeding:

*** Removing binary at 'c:\users\mozauto\appdata\local\temp\tmpkiggp7.binary\'

Thanks for the landing Dave. Good to see that we make a little bit of progress on that stuff and that we correctly report now what's going wrong. It's a kinda mess what's going on with maintenanceservice_installer.exe here and I don't have a solution for it yet - see latest updates on bug 858686. 

By any means that was not really a blocker for the release tests given that we were affected by that for a longer time. The failure was simply not visible. Anyway, good to see that it has been landed.

I will forward port the patch to our 2.0 automation scripts today.
