A warning on conemu and other terminal emulators for Windows. They DO NOT behave the same as a pure command(or powershell) prompt

A coworker wrote a CAKE script for the build that was supposed to wait for a spawned process to finish. The script he wrote would simply block forever on my machine. Finally tracked it down to some of the kludges he wrote to find the right process to wait on. The entire set of kludges was needed because he was using a terminal emulator and the spawned process was not a direct child process.
