I might be mistaken, but doesn't Windows even require the quotes to be
around _all_ of an argument, so -dpoint-and-click="#f" would not work,
but "-dpoint-and-click=#f" would?

It is also conceivable that this depends on the startup stub of whatever
compiler you happened to be using.

I know why I don't do Windows.
