      Something odd is happening for me on Windows 7 (64 bit). I have my own compiled copy of Vim, and when I run


      I get "Shell returned 1" and the buffer is empty. Here, sparkup(.py) is a Python file - I have a .py file association and .py in my PATHEXT variable. The same command works fine when executed from a cmd.exe (or powershell) prompt.

      In messing around trying to work out what is going on, I find that setting 'shellxquote' to "( rather than its default of ( fixes the problem. And yet I see no reason why this should be necessary - other commands like tr a-z A-Z work fine, and if the vim default was wrong, I'm sure many more people than me would have had issues.

      I'm not sure what on earth I can do to get any further with this - obviously I can simply set shellxquote and ignore the problem, but I'm worried that there may be some underlying issue that I really should address.
