+        Log: various fixes for system() and backticks under windows:
+             
+             * avoid munging whitespace that is passed within quotes
+             * work around a cmd.exe misfeature that made multi-arg
+             system() unreliable when there is more than one quoted
+             argument
+             * make multi-arg system() autoquote arguments as needed
+             before passing them to the shell (this avoids having to
+             second guess the shell quoting)
