>This fixes MANY things, some of which may not be evident, and possibly creates regressions which I have not yet seen but will try to correct. Some of these may be caused by the fact that I've seen code send CreateProcessW incorrect flags. Some things of note: DO NOT send partial names as "lpApplicationName". It's not supposed to work unless you're in the same current directory. Also, do NOT send CREATE_UNICODE_ENVIRONMENT if you don't have a unicode environement, and vice-versa. I've seen lots of code doing mistakes related to this. I hope you appreciate this patch and won't all jump on me for possbile regressions :(.
your rewrite of CreateProcess is broken. Before you can inform csrss
about the process creation, you have to gather all informations about
handles and creation options. After your commit, each console
application creates its own console window and the redirection of
standard handles is broken. It seems also that the inheritance of msvcrt
file id's is broken. This stops compiling ros on ros.
