No.  It's an implementation difference.  The src/run.c piped_child
function accepts an argv array as an argument on Linux and passes that
argv directly to execvp.  Since argv[0] holds the contents of $CVS_RSH,
the system looks for a process names "$CVS_RSH", spaces, arguments, and
all.  The windows-NT/run.c pipted_child function turns it's argv into a
single string with space-delimited arguments which it then passes back
to the Windows shell for parsing, so the contents of $CVS_RSH gets
resplit on spaces.
