What I understand you two as saying is that there seems to be an undocumented difference in execxxe between unix and windows which has been carried over to subprocess. In particular, for both, the PATH component of the env parameter is used to search for the file on *nix but not on windows, even though this is not part of posix behavior. So reopening -- as a doc issue -- unless an os expert like Martin declares this to be a behavior bug.

Grissiom, can you verify that the difference still exists in 3.2/3?
