Hello,

recently I got a bug report in Fedora:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=3D1124436
Short summary:  On windows, the 'argv' in main() function is filled
by "preprocessed" content.  When `./wrapper.exe I =E2=99=A5 lt`, the ar=
gv gets
filled by ["./wrapper.exe", "I", "?", "lt"].  Libtool wrapper parses th=
is
argv[] content and based on this broken arguments it spawns the origina=
l
binary.  That way, original binary has different arguments and it
complicates testing, for example.

I tried to look at how it is done in the wrapper;  and I believe the
possible fix is non-trivial enough.  We need probably use the
GetcommandLineW and CommandLineToArgvW functions to obtain wide version=
 of
argv.  That way, however, after removing --lt* arguments, you need to
escape the wide argv same way as for non-wide version (and pass it into=

the _wspawnv call, instead of _spawnv).  I am not familiar with windows=

api, so if you see that there is simpler/better solution, please say.

Firstly, I would like to know whether upstream is interested in such fi=
x
and whether there is somebody interested in patch-review.  Secondly, TB=
H,
I'm not perfect example of guy to do such change (I could give it a try=
,
thought, through wine the problem seems to be reproducible).  If there =
was
somebody familiar with windows who wanted to write the patch, I would b=
e
glad to do the review and testing.

Thanks for ideas!
Pavel
