as we get but report for programs not working because the get fooled by 
wine's start.exe (which shouldn't exist on latest NT), another way would 
be to integrate the start exec as a wcmd command
you'd kill two birds with one stone
incidentally you would break Win9x programs requiring start outside of 
the command handler...
