Wow. It's not RunSuite that's doing it, but RunList. See RunList:491. 
Looking at the surrounding code, this is apparently a convoluted hack 
to keep certain properties from being available to RunTest and/or 
propagated back up to the RunSuite level. I don't think I ever noticed 
this call to Runtime.exec() in RunList before now. This could obviously 
be achieved in a drastically more efficient manner.

But, it's best not to get me started about all the things that are 
wrong with RunList. Now I have another item to add to my list though.
