It's not a "windows" bug, I think that the "/tmp" folder of the user
has spaces:

C:\users\John Smith\temp

And this could raise problems. I had tested the new project (clean)
compilation and works perfectly in WinXP but my "/tmp" is "C:\Temp".

I think it will happend in any platform when the temp folder points to
somewhere with spaces.
