When Invoking a Start-Process command remotely it appears that the -Wait parameter is disregarded. This issue is new to Powershell 3.0. Powerhsell 2.0 handled the -Wait parameter correctly.

When the Start-Process cmd-let is ran locally in Powershell 3.0 the -Wait parameter functions as expected.  The issue just occurs when invoked remotely.

Tested using: Windows Web Server 2008 x64 R2
