Actually, it wasn't the memory issue at all. For whatever reason, it just 
couldn't find the "start" command at all without the SHELL=c:\ 
pointer. Now why it could seemingly find every other command I've ever typed 
into this thing over the past few years, just not "start", is anyone's guess.

Man ... have I mentioned how much I absolutely LOVE having my all shell 
commands in one or two monolithic files, rather than two nice clean /bin 
& /usr/bin directories with each separate binary there for the checking? 
Excellent design, this ... if you don't just *happen* to know where the "start" 
command lives, I guess you're just shite out of luck. Oh well, enough whining 
for tonight I suppose =)

ANYTHING on Win is "write-once-debug-anywhere" ;-)

Thanks again, chief!
