I cannot reproduce this problem. I used the notepad.exe executable that
came with Windows XP as my exe. I've attached my attempt to reproduce
the problem as a script. Would you run it in a new directory and report
the output?

At first, I was suspicious of the URL, thinking that the DOS syntax was
causing an issue, but that didn't turn out to be the case. Nevertheless,
I suggest you try the Cygwin-style for your URL:
