The manual's description of shell-quote-argument has meanwhile got a
cross-reference to `(elisp) Security Considerations'.  I've added a
mention of this problem there, and an expected-to-fail test to make it
clear what the problem is.  With that, I'll close the bug.

  Mention that shell quoting of % on w32 may fail (Bug#19350)
