      Description

      The test infrastructure (the exec utility to be exact) fails on platforms such as Windows 2000 that impose a low limit on the length of the command line. See the following post:
      http://www.nabble.com/RE%3A-Windows-build-failures-p12508639.html

      As Farid says in his post, to prevent such failures, excessively long command lines need to be written to a temporary file by the infrastructure and subsequently read from it by the exec utility.
