This change allows a formatted commandline to be used where
'|' is used to represent spaces and <program-name> and
<process-id> are special tokens.

In my case, I set my CYGWIN env. var to

    processing so that custom commandlines can be passed to          
    the debugger program using '|' as an argument delimiter          
    and <program-name> and <process-id> as special tokens.
