In a windows debug build, an assertion is triggered when os.execvpe is
called with an empty argument list:

self.assertRaises(OSError, os.execvpe, 'no such app-', [], None)

The same problem is present in the trunk version.
Attached is a patch that fixes this, with a test.

This issue was misclassified as an interpreter crash while in fact it was a bug in the underlying OS utility. Please see discussion in issue8154.

Since the fix changes behavior, it should be documented and a NEWS entry added.
