run_child() expects `cmdline` to be correctly quoted, and normally it is.

I can't reproduce this problem with Python 3.10.2. I created a user account with a space in the account name, logged on, and installed 3.10.2 for the current user, with the option enabled to add Python to PATH. Next I opened a command prompt in the user profile directory and created a virtual environment via `python.exe -m venv .venv`. Running ".venv\Scripts\python.exe -X utf8" worked. The command line used by the venv "python.exe" launcher was properly quoted and thus properly parsed in the original list of command-line arguments, sys.orig_argv.
