Actually, why would it ever pass a -c option to cmd.exe in this case.  cmd.exe 
is not a unixy_shell, and it is a batch_mode_shell, and echo is one of the 
shell commands.  It should be using batch mode, which discards the 
"C:/WINNT/system32/cmd.exe -c" part before dumping the command to a temporary 
batch file.
