g++: Problem with system()

I have a program that calls programs with system(). It also prints out
what it wants to execute. Compiled with linux gcc everything works fine.
But the executable compiled with cygwin has a problem: It only works
when executed in the windows bash. Executed in a DOS-Box it only writes
what he wants to exec but doesn't do anything even if I only call
something simple like "echo ...". In Windows 95 this "doing nothing"
even takes a lot of time but in Windows 98 and NT4 it is very quick.

thank you for help
