in thread Win32 backticks fail when too many ENV vars

Thanks for the update

The following MS documentation must be wrong: it lists the max sizes as:
The maximum individual environment variable size is 8192bytes.

The maximum total environment variable size for all variables, which includes variable names and the equal sign, is 65,536KB

I thought I was far away from that. Now it's clear that it's a typo.

Regards, J
