Description

Shellwords.escape works incorrect under windows (tested for Windows 7
x64), here is example:

Actual result:

irb(main):001:0> require 'shellwords'
=> true

irb(main):002:0> echo #{Shellwords.escape( '123>' )} test # should
echo "123> test", but echo nothing
=> ""

irb(main):003:0> File.read( 'test' ) # but writes file "test"
=> "123\\n"

Expected result:

irb(main):001:0> echo 132^> test # the correct escape sequence, echoed
"123> test"
=> "132> test\n"

Tested for "ruby 2.0.0p0 (2013-02-24) [i386-mingw32]", ruby 1.9.3, but this bug can be found in earlier ruby versions as well.
