New submission from shypike <shypike at sabnzbd.org>:

subprocess.py/list2cmdline should also put double quotes around strings that contain ampersands (&), but no spaces.
If not, the Windows command processor will split the command into two separate parts. In short, '&' needs the same treatment as '|'.
