Shouldn't the console-hiding code be unnecessary?
Here is a simple approach that I have been using (and have written
to this list previously) which makes it possible to start rxvt
without resorting to starting a console first:
1. Using MS Windows Explorer, locate the 'rxvt' binary in your
Cygwin directory tree, for example, at c:\cygwin\bin.
2. Right-click on the 'rxvt.exe' icon and select 'Create Shortcut'
from the menu.
3. Right-click on the 'Shortcut to rxvt.exe' icon and select
'Properties' from the menu.
4. In the 'Target' field, type the options that you want to
specify for 'rxvt' during startup. For example,
C:\cygwin\bin\rxvt.exe -e /bin/bash --login -i
tells rxvt to run 'bash' as the shell, and tells bash
to run as a login shell.
5. If desired, drag&drop the shortcut icon to your taskbar.
Click on the icon to start 'rxvt' without using a console.
Am I missing something, or is there still another reason to
include the console-hiding code?

After installing rxvt-20050409-1, starting rxvt from a console bash
hides that console. To reproduce: start a console bash, type "rxvt" or
(either way), observe that the bash window goes away (the process is
still running, though). I don't think the cygcheck output is relevant,
since this looks like an rxvt problem (caused by the new code to hide
the console). Chuck, if you can't reproduce this, please let me know
and I'll provide more details.
