Windows 8 Release Preview. fork problems with rsync

Urgh! Hmm.. Do you see the same effect when running the process in
question under the Windows 8 operating system context?
If you manifest and include:
<!--The ID below indicates application support for Windows Vista -->
<!--The ID below indicates application support for Windows 7 -->
<!--The ID below indicates application support for Windows 8 -->
Does the odd behaviour still persist?
Could it be possibly be something to do with the fault tolerant heap
(FTH) and changes they've made to it? I would try ensuring that is
switched off too...
(Process Hacker will show the context of a running process.)
