If I remember correctly ConnectNamedPipe() is called to make sure that
both ends are connected before the constructor of
boost::process::behavior::named_pipe returns. As CreateFileA() is called
with FILE_FLAG_OVERLAPPED this function could return immediately and the
program could continue without the parent end already open.
