While it would be great if REBOL could hide every detail of
cross-platform portability, system calls and library interfaces can't
always work that way. I usually just put these things in wrappers, so
only one part of the code has to know about it.

I think this is due to R3 being alpha, and not many people having
tested the shell interface. Submit the bug to CureCode and it will
get on RTs radar.
