Just found issue15451, which reports a similar inconsistency between Windows and POSIX for 'PATH' provided through the Popen env parameter as for cwd. It seems that, on POSIX-platforms, the PATH environment variable passed through env affects the executable lookup if executable does *not* contain a dirname, but on Windows the new PATH never affects executable lookup. So, again, relative executable paths are causing platform-specific behavior.
