in reply to Windows 7: fork in perl script spawns new cmd window

OK - so adding "call" like so

open(IN, "call svn info ... | ");
fixes the problem - but I'd still like to understand why this is needed in this new environment, and isn't needed on other W7 machines or older XP machines around here.
