I think you're running run.exe from Chuck Wilson's site.  I managed to
duplicate this behavior.  Apparently it happens because valid looking handles
exist for stdin/stdout/stderr even when a program is linked with -mwindows.
My new code attempted to do something with the handles and NT did something
nonsensical.  I've worked around the behavior.  It's checked in and in the
next snapshot.
