> It does not work on Windows

I always consider Windows as a special case because Windows uses unicode internally. Byte string are converted quickly to unicode using the current locale.

My patch was for UNIX/BSD which uses byte string internally.

sp_CreateProcess() in PC/_subprocess.c uses CreateProcessW. To support byte string, we should use the byte string version of CreateProcess ("CreateProcessA" ?) or convert current directory to unicode (using the current locale). The second solution minimize the changes.
