My Windows box is now fixed.  Sort of.  But I really don't understand
Windows, and have no desire to learn.  I can run the tests, and check
their results, but that's about the limit.  I have no intention of
fussing around with cmd.exe and the like...

Some time ago, Faré suggested that it might be worth replacing use of
cmd.exe with powershell in UIOP/run-program.

I don't really know what powershell is, but I get the impression it's a
shell that's less horrible than cmd.exe.
