I think that adding safer wrappers and deprecating things are valuable but different bugs.  In the short term, we could apply the proposed small patch to just fix the issue at hand.  Can one of the Windows experts weigh in?

The patch does this:

    if mswindows:
        pipe = os.popen('( ' + cmd + ' ) 2>&1', 'r')
        pipe = os.popen('{ ' + cmd + '; } 2>&1', 'r')

It was tested manually; a test should be simple to write.
