           Summary: CMD does not support %*
           Product: ReactOS
           Version: TRUNK
          Platform: x86 Hardware
        OS/Version: Microsoft Windows Server 2003
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P3
         Component: Shell
        AssignedTo: ros-bugs at reactos.org
        ReportedBy: waxdragon at gmail.com
         QAContact: ros-bugs at reactos.org

When using ROS cmd.exe under windows, the "%*" variable is not supported at
all.  This breaks the vim.bat that comes with Vim.

When used inside a batch file, it contains the arguments to the batch file,
when called from a normal shell, it just prints "%*".

Example script, test.bat:
@echo "These should be the remaining args: %*"

Call this script as "test.bat Hello World!"
and it should print

C:\Documents and Settings\ford\Desktop>test.bat Hello World!
"These should be the remaining args: Hello World!"
