Right. The program I use this in doesn't run on cygwin but on "normal" 
win32, so I have no kill command there.

Another poster mentioned the possible difference between handles and 
pids, which I didn't notice in my case. I only feed the number returned 
from the spawn call into pskill, which just does the right thing.
