conhosts.exe stuck for long system() calls

I wrote a MATLAB function that calls "dir /s /b" Windows within MATLAB and return the result in a string, but the call gets stuck like around 40% of the time with "conhosts.exe" stalling once I switched to Windows 7, and it gets really annoying. I also have similar problem in Code Composer Studio too when build calls gets stuck randomly with conhosts.exe floating.

Anybody have the same problem on their Win7 system? It was never a problem when I had WinXP. I know it might not be a MATLAB specific problem, but the part that hurts me the most is my daily MATLAB usage.
