I don't know what the cause of this particular error would be. It's probably worth filing a bug at http://webkit.org/new-bug

But you should also know that new-run-webkit-tests isn't yet supported on Windows. That is covered by <http://wkb.ug/38756>. You should use the run-webkit-tests script (which will call through to old-run-webkit-tests) instead.
