OK, pushed with some additional comment-smithing.

I noticed while looking at this that for subprocesses that aren't supposed
to be attached to shared memory, we do pgwin32_ReserveSharedMemoryRegion()
anyway in internal_forkexec(), and then that's never undone anywhere,
so that that segment of the subprocess's memory space remains reserved.
I'm not sure if this is worth changing, but if it is, we could do so now
by calling VirtualFree() in PGSharedMemoryNoReAttach().

BTW, I am suspicious that the DSM stuff may have related issues --- do
we use inheritable mapping handles for DSM segments on Windows?
