Yes, this is probably the reason.

Both the snapshot builds and the 3.4 release are 32-bit builds done
with Visual Studio 2012, but they didn't were not done with the XP
compatible mode.

I don't know the details of what the difference is in this "XP support
mode", but I'll try to figure out if we can use that for future
