I'm afraid not easily. I have the same exact problem, since I'm also
a tcsh user. The problem is that os.system() seems to have the shell
it calls hardcoded, as far as I can see. I can't find anything in
the docs that shows how to modify that.
We could switch over to the subprocess module and manually control the
shell spawning, but I don't have currently to do that. Patches
