Ok, the problem was autoruns

reg query "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor" /s

How to change the default startup directory for Command Prompt?

Hidden gotcha: The command processor's AutoRun setting - The Old New Thing - Site Home - MSDN Blogs

This could (or not) be considered a win32 perl bug as SH_PATH/Config#sh is lacking a /D option

$ perl -V:sh sh='cmd /x /c';

$ cmd /? ... /D Disable execution of AutoRun commands from registry (see below +) ... If /D was NOT specified on the command line, then when CMD.EXE starts, + it looks for the following REG_SZ/REG_EXPAND_SZ registry variables, and i +f either or both are present, they are executed first. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor\AutoRun and/or HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor\AutoRun

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
