Using Neil Shamenaur's (sp?) standalone 1.5.2 distribution for win32, I
load the python15.dll in a windows executable.  The python script
then executed does a "os.system('start iexplore.exe')".

When this script is run from a DOS box, it works fine, (IE starts).

>From the windows executable, it gives a DOS mode warning when the
os.system happens.

Is this expected?  Is there any way to prevent it?
