Oh, hmm.  If you call spawnve, rather than execve, a new child pid
is generated in spawnve, rather than just keeping the callers pid.

However, apparently the child invents its own pid in pinfo::thisproc
after being spawned.  But actually this should only occur for forked
processes aore processes started from non-Cygwin parents.
