if you are running on windows just relaunch a cmd from
%SystemRoot%/Sysnative/cmd.exe (see MSDN) if not on vista build
yourself a tiny executable that disables the FS redirector then
launches the 64bit cmd.exe passing on the arg list.
job done.

Condor should stay away from that entirely for now. It works in the
default case and if you need to work round it from a script it's easy.

As for executables rather than scripts that's a different matter...
