escript empty arguments on windows

There is a difference in the way escripts treats empty strings in the
argument list on Windows and Unix. Under cygwin and cmd any ""
parameters are stripped out and don't appear in the main(Args) list. The
Unix version of escript preserves these as an empty list. This looks
like a bug to me.
