Sure, process creation on Windows is definitely more prone to problems
it seems to me (App Paths, dll's scattered all over, etc), although I
haven't done a lot of Unix development. And it looks like mbk has
already committed a fix. :)

Hopefully that will help reduce the problem reports since my suspicion
is that the tunnel agent or it's support dll's are not in the PATH in
many cases.
