system call crashes

	This problem has been already reported for B20.1, but I didn't find any 
solutions in the archives. The C program which uses system calls to launch 
another application in the background always gives you "illegal operation" 
message, i.e. for system("plot &") where plot.exe is another executable. In 
fact, both applications seem to work fine despite the warning, once you close 
the message window. However the user gets it every time system call is issued, 
and it is quite annoying to close it many times. 
I hope someone knows workaround this problem. Any help is greatly appreciated. 

I have Windows-95, gcc-2.95.2, and cygwin B20.1.
