It seems that mtxrun --noquotes behaves differently on windows and linux. Can someone on windows (who has vim) check the following. Run

mtxrun --noquotes bin:vim "-u NONE -c \"set tabstop=8\" test.tex"

You will enter in vim. Press :qa! to exit vim. What does the output on the terminal say? On my linux machine, I get

MTXrun | executing: vim -u NONE -c "set tabstop=8" test.tex

Andy Wong tested it on windows and he gets

MTXrun | executing: vim -u NONE -c "set tabstop=8" "test.tex

Notice the spurious " before test.tex. This causes t-vim to fail on windows. Do others on windows get the same behavour? I do not see a reason why mtxrun should behave differently on linux and windows.
