[New-bugs-announce] [issue2200] find_executable fails to find .bat files on win32

New submission from Lev Shamardin:

distutils.spawn.find_executable appends '.exe' suffix on win32 and os2
platforms. This is incorrect behavior, since it prevents finding .bat,
.cmd and other similar files. Ether all extensions from the %PATHEXT%
must be checked or filenames both with appended suffix and without
appending suffix must be checked.
