I doubt if this is a signal.  It's more probably an error code from a
library function that tries to launch a subsidiary process and fails.

In other words, if I'm right, some Windows-specific code fails to
distinguish between a subprocess being terminated due to a signal and
a failure to run the subprocess.  A bug that needs to be fixed.
