I'm still awake. I'm trying to create a SP1 version of Win XP from an
extra copy of XP that I have sitting around.
I didn't anticipate that this would have different effects based on
whether the service was allowed to interact with the desktop or not. I
may be able to work around that fact.
The reason for ignoring the argument in set_console_state_for_spawn is
that I think the CreateWindowStation function always has to be called
regardless of whether it's a non-cygwin process or not.
