Issue #1010 has been updated by Chauk-Mean Proum.



Following the thread on the rake mailing list (http://rubyforge.org/pipermail/rake-devel/2008-November/000673.html), it seems that Kernel#system on Windows handles or may handle correctly multiple arguments.
I guess that the call to system with a single argument will be removed and thus the specific ruby-1.9 issue I reported will disappear.

I hope that Jim Weirich will be able to integrate the corresponding changes for ruby-1.9.1 release.
Otherwise, my simple fix should be considered as a temporary workaround and committed for this release.
