>From the bash shell the ` (backtick or command execution) work. But when
I spawn a process and execute a shell script which contains the back
ticks, the process just chokes.
For example, a simple shell script like
myenv=`/bin/env | grep CYGWIN`
I am able to execute this script properly from the bash shell (as any

But this same script when executed via a spawned process does not work.
