What I was mainly talking about was the Windows command prompt.  Apostrophe quoting doesn't work.  It must be quotation marks.  Nothing to do with the t file test case.

Tony indicated that system() does not use the fork() mechanism on Windows.  So that might need a completely seperate patch.  Or it could be unaffected.
