Hello Jim,

Based on current master branch at github:

352 tests, 977 assertions, 0 failures, 0 errors

Yet still, we see the skipped tests based on system() call:


I got lost in that thread, so will be good James could summarize his

Keep in mind that is not only Windows broken under this situation but
also Jruby AFAIK.

Any jruby user that could provide more feedback will be appreciated too.
