I hastily rewrote "kill.exe". At first, I thought I was crazy to think that "kill" was the culprit. But, indeed, my version kills things nicely or prints an error, and the version shipping with the reskit (or wherever I got it) doesn't.
When given a nonnumeric argument, it searches process executable names and it only gets a match if it matches up to the "." or up to the end of the name. IE: you can "kill calc" or "kill calc.exe" but you can't "kill calculator" or "kill cal" and expect it to match. It kills pids if the first argument consists, entirely, of digits.
Here's the source. And here's the binary.
