#9488: bjam.exe and doskey not getting along

 I just ran into a really strange bug... Attemptign to install boost to be
 available to Visual Studio Express 2012, I attempted a the following
 method of install:

 1) Open a Visual Studio command prompt. From the start menu it's: All
 Programs|Microsoft Visual Studio 11|Native x64 Command Prompt.
 2) Unzip boost_1_48_0.zip and set the working directory to boost_1_48_0
 3) run bootstrap.bat
 4) run bjam.exe

 All went well until I ran bjam.exe. I got to the "Building the Boost C++
 Libraries" and then doskey crashed repeatedly.

 I have doskey being run everytime an instance of cmd.exe, is executed (via
 a batch script in HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor: reg_sz
 AutoRun). If I remove doskey from the AutoRun script, the crash does not

 The would make sense if bjam.exe was calling processes via cmd.exe, which
 seems like odd practice (I think).
