Revision 31811 by yugui (http://svn.ruby-lang.org/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi?view=revision&revision=31811) which was merged from the trunk contains a bug. It should be lstrlen instead of lstrlenW as its a char* not a wchar_t*. This has caused us a lot of problems with spawn failing spuriously.

This was introduced between 1.9.2-p180 and 1.9.2-p290 and should, IMO, make it into the next patch release of 1.9.2.
