#765: broken posix/process function under Windows 7 (MingW)
 Reporter:  Karl_H          |       Owner:       
     Type:  defect          |      Status:  new  
 Priority:  major           |   Milestone:  4.8.0
Component:  core libraries  |     Version:  4.7.x
 Keywords:                  |  
 The posix/process function does not return from calls under Windows 7
 (Windows Vista seems to work; 32 and 64 bit are inflicted). This problem
 occures in compiled programms and in the interpreter.

 Interestingly the process* function doesn't share this malfunction and I
 was able to write the following simple workarround:

 ;; after loading the posix unit
 (set! process (lambda (#!rest rest)
                 (receive (a b c d) (apply process* rest)
                           (values a b c))))

 An example for an egg that uses the functionality is the pstk or the tk
 egg and both seem to work with the above workaround.
