There's a misunderstanding. I know that the CreateProcess() does less
processing on the first token than on the remaining ones (the arguments),
therefore the code is made for the arguments, and the unit test also
tests the arguments.

If you want to see what happens, just remove the '*' from
SHELL_SPECIAL_CHARS and re-run the unit test.

The 'lock' test is slow on some platforms. Just let it run. As long as
it does not produce a dialog or "ps" does not show it as stuck, it is

But the script refers to ${EXEEXT}, therefore you need to set EXEEXT=.exe
if you run the script separately, not through "make check".
