Well, it seems to me that the case is if the current directory is 
then I use "start some-pdf.pdf", which is in "c:\users\xxx\", it works fine. 
is called and pdf is opened. However if I type "start 
c:\users\xxx\some-pdf.pdf" which
is exactly the same file, the cmd window just pop up another cmd window and 
does nothing.
I don't know what is going on there.
