[R] output of system() call not returned in Win98

On one machine running Win98 and R 1.2.2 this command works:

	system("command.com /c dir",show=T,invisible=T)

On another machine also running Win98 and R 1.2.2 it does not.
Nothing appears.

On another machine running Win98 and R 1.3.0 it also does not work.

Is this a known problem?  Many thanks for any help.
