Emacs on Windows redirects the shell's standard handles to a pipe, and
pipes on Windows are fully-buffered (as opposed to line-buffering for
the console device).  So if your program doesn't flush its standard
output frequently enough, you may see this problem.

Console applications on Windows use the current OEM codepage, not
UTF-16.
