Hey Nick (or anyone else),

What was the exact issue with Async spawning on Windows? I know it's not 
working but maybe we/I can come up with a work-around and/or help fix it 
upstream. IIRC last time I tried to enable the #ifdef'd out async code 
for Windows, there was some glib-async-helper.exe or something like this 
and when I ran it it crashed everytime, but this was with a quite recent 
Geany and GLIB and maybe I was mixing Geany bundled GTK+ with my own 
newer bundle in PATH. Maybe we just need to bundle this utility or 

If anyone can give a little info on what the problem is and what was 
tried to fix it, I can probably spend some time this weekend to have 
(another) shot at fixing it.

P.S. This email has absolutely nothing to do with the commit its 
replying to except for being related to process spawning on Windows and 
the Geany Win32 expert might read it :)
