Actually your comments on FAT and FAT32 are not quite true, especially when it comes to the dir command. They do have options for reading data without locking, it's WRITING that requires a lock.

And I seriously doubt that the dir command is the issue here, since system() is being used dir would behave as normal and just wait to access any locked data until its (actually the redirectors) internal timeout gets kicked, and then barf a semephore timeout error.

I ran into the exact same issue trying to fork in Windows, and if you want, change the 'dir' to an 'echo' command, chances are you will hit the same thing.

"Nothing is sure but death and taxes" I say combine the two and its death to all taxes!
