on the waitfor issue:  yes, it's a hack.  But, so is Windows, the platform to
which this hack applies.  ;)  Windows JVMs are utter hell on threading.  I can
put together some fairly complicated threading stuff that works fine on a Sun
JVM and locks up 75% of the time on Windows.  The I/O redirection code is at the
mercy of the thread scheduler.  I would be thrilled if a threading expert were
to improve upon the redirection code, and I am as dismayed as anyone that the
tests are no more reliable than they are.  The thread interaction here works
AFAIK, if sometimes more slowly than we might like.  Anything any more complex
than what we have here I have been unable to make work at all on Windows after
spending two months trying (I'm still mad about this).
