strange problem with os.system() call

Problem solved. It turned out the program "my_rec" has statically big
array declared at the first line. Python somehow changes the stacksize
limit to very small (~2M ?), so that the array could not be allocated in

Is it a bug in python to change the stacksize? or is it just a RedHat
6.2 problem?
