I've notice that since 8.4.4 I no longer can exec 16
bit dos apps in Windows 9x using tclsh84.exe &
tclpip84.dll. The symptom is an error "command not found" .
Tclsh8.4.3 worked ok. I backed out changes posted by Mo
Dejong in the core-8-4-branch changelog on 7-16-03 and
now tclsh84 now execs 16 bit apps again.

    Could you try to apply the following patch to the
    win/tclWinPipe.c file? It should fix the problem.
    I am also going to check this into the 8.4 branch
    in the CVS.
