      Description

      To ensure variables are refreshed each catalog compilation we use the facter's system_uptime fact (see variables_refreshed_each_compilation test). Unfortunately there's an issue with facter that may cause that fact not to be present on Windows systems (See FACT-1504). We should update this test to use a different, constantly changing variable - at least on windows.
