Windows' command "shell" is particularly braindead, but I believe on all
platforms, the shell commandline is whitespace delimited. I'm guessing
that all parameters are being emitted doublequoted by APR, and Windows
is stripping the quotes, then deciding that the NULL author wasn't a
field after all and shifting everything up.

It may be necessary to send '' instead of NULL so that dainbread shell's
get it...
