Issue #1482 has been updated by nobu (Nobuyoshi Nakada).


Unfortunately, I've lost my topic branch for this issue, so have to rewrite from the previous patch again.

 Here is pretty convoluted test case:
 
 puts ENV["COMSPEC"] # => "C:\WINDOWS\system32\mycmd.exe"
 
 File.open("1.bat", "w") { |f| f.write("time") } # create test batch file with command which waits for user input
 
 Kernel.exec("1.bat") # now the process tree inspection shows that the "C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe" is still used to interpret 1.bat
=end
