There are bugs there, but that is not the fix.

Unfortunately, Windows doesn't always work as one would expect.  If more
than one command is executed on a process, you can't redirect the output.
Furthermore, cmd.exe doesn't exist on Win9X.  What you see at the moment is
a compromise between what can be made to work and what existing build
scripts actually use.

If you can find a fix which produces the exact same output for the Javadoc
task on win9x as the current code does, I would be very grateful.
