When creating a child process on Windows, we’re calling the WaitForSingleObject with an INFINITE timeout, which means ruby can’t be interrupted, e.g. Ctrl-C, until the child process exits.

I have merged the change. I half expected it to sleep for some time – a second, up to maybe five – in the Windows call, and not really at all on the Ruby side, which would allow signals to be handled without too much delay, but that implementation looks pretty reasonable, and is certainly safe enough to put into the RC.
