As I understand the problem, it's basically that the parent gets the
correct argv (or the Windows equiv - I forget right now), but that
when it spawns its children, it gets screwed up.

Why can't the first parent process just copy the arguments into a
local bit of memory which the children use later on, so that Windows'
process management problems don't affect it?
