system uses the shell, even with Perl (in Perl it actually depends on 
what are the parameters).  But the shell can be bypassed, so I guess 
this is a shell limit.

Like said Peter, we need to know:
- How is it called in Perl.
- How is it called in Python, and do you have the same problem by using 
popen.
