I think I found a reproduceable problem in PATH environment
variable, so I'm reporting it to here.
If an original MS-DOS PATH environment variable has
something like '"C:\Program Files\Test"', this part of PATH
variable is not converted under Cygwin environment.
However, this part in wrongly converted back when I called
MS-DOS program. As a result, I cannot use _spawnXX
functions correctly from my program under Cygwin environemnt
if original PATH environment variable contains '"'.
For example, Original PATH:
PATH for a program executed from Cygwin:
Remove all '"' from original MS-DOS/Windows PATH environment
