#include <Process.au3>
_RunDOS('"' & @ProgramFilesDir & "\MSN Messenger\msnmsgr.exe" & '"')

You could also use the Run command to start it

Run(@ProgramFilesDir & "\MSN Messenger\msnmsgr.exe")

Should I report this bug?

I consider as not a bug, as it is just your syntax usage with _RunDos. @Comspec is used in the UDF and you need to wrap the command in quotes if it has spaces which you initally did not do. This is standard stuff for using DOS. Edited by MHz
