bug#20220: severe memory leak on emacs 24.4.1

You are correct; the problem only happens with a file:/// url. The following executes without problem and emacs memory stays constant:
(dotimes (i 100) (w32-shell-execute "open" "c:/users/mario/desktop/x.html"))
With a file:/// url it triggers the bug:
(dotimes (i 100) (w32-shell-execute "open" "file:///c:/users/mario/desktop/x.html"))

SHCORE.dll sounds like a Windows 8 version of shlwapi.dll, or maybe a
part of it.  So this looks very similar to what I saw on that single
Windows 7 system.

Do you also see that the problem happens only if w32-shell-execute is
called with a file:/// URL, and does not happen if it is called with a
normal Windows file name?
