Some external program failures will now return an oops page showing some info about the fault, but something better is needed please.

I'm finding on windows, that i'm getting rlog.exe hangs and perl.exe zombies when trying to run some external programs. Alas, these errors are happening too early to be able to return some sort of oops page. What i'm seeing in the apache log file is attempts to access files that do exist but are not found or paths that are wrong to files that do exist. I'm also seeing lines where rlog starts to complain, but the rest of the message isn't shown because somehow the rlog.exe program is hung.

I would like to add a flag to TWiki.cfg which, if set to 1, would cause each of the RCS, grep, egrep, ls, etc. commands to dump their command line to the $datadir/log.txt file before the command is run. If it could also detect any failure and report that to the log after the command runs, so much the better.

I can see places where to put this, but I don't know the syntax of writing to the log file, otherwise i'd submit a suggested patch.
