You use windows more than me :)  I have no idea what shell it uses - but
if it's the DOS shell the && above is never going to work.

I have GNU Emacs (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600) of 2009-02-26 on
LENNART-69DE564 (patched) here which I can try.

I think this version uses the DOS shell and git which is installed on
the system isn't available from this shell.

Maybe I should just disable the git version for now on ms-dos,
windows-nt, and cygwin since I don't know how to make it work reliably
on windows.
