AFAIK, there are EXE-files that open a console, and others, that don't.

It seems, there is a flag in the EXE-files, which determines if Windows
should open a console or not.

So i always was annoyed by the fact, that starting rxvt directly from
windows opens a console windows.

Isn't it possible, to create such an EXE-file, that doesn't open a
console? Would that cause any problems with cygwin?

That would make any "hide the console"-code unnecessary.


P.S.: i can reproduce the bug too.
