Hi Mike,

I have no access to a windows machine, so it is not surprising that the
windows shell doesn't work as expected.

All of the external Babel calls do use built in Emacs functions for
calling external programs all of which work cross platform (which is why
these other languages work on Windows despite no explicit Windows
testing or development), however I believe that the shell is simply too
OS-specific to expect things to "just work" as in the other languages.

If you do find ways to improve ob-sh.el for windows I would be happy to
fold such changes in.

Thanks -- Eric
