To be more specific, with patch 1 applied:"start file a&b>x", shell=True)

is equivalent to typing the following at a command prompt:

start file a & b > x

That is, "start file a" and then do "b", redirecting the output from "b" to a file named "x".

With the change to os.startfile, we can write it as this:

os.startfile("file", "open", "a&b>x")

Which matches what we intended above. (startfile implies "start <first argument>", and passes the third argument to the launched program without modification.)
