url-retrieve-synchronously should not be using a subprocess, so unlikely.
It does use a subprocess.  But it typically doesn't send much data via
process-send-region (tho it can easily receive a lot of data from such

The "subprocess" it uses should be a network socket, not a real subprocess. The lisp interface is the same, but I am fairly certain that bug#5359 is caused by a limitation in Windows stdio buffering between processes, not by anything internal to Emacs, so it should only affect real subprocesses.
