Thanks, I'll update the code! If you have any ideas how a test case could
look like to verify the fix let me know (given that there is no mocking
framework in Boost yet).

I'd appreciate a Boost-wide solution or guideline. And I think this thread
has already turned into a Unicode discussion? :) The interface of
Boost.Process in that aspect has definitely evolved without clear
direction - I think neither I nor other Boost.Process developers spent
time trying to solve this problem in this library.

If you have a patch just drop me a mail! :)

Thanks! I have some more patches waiting to be applied. There will be
definitely another update (of the implementation only) before the review
