Corinna, can you give this a try? (I'm happy to send you a compiled
version of the modified run.exe if that helps).
I just built it myself, and this looks pretty good.  I can start xterm
and urxvt-X wjust fine without a flickering cmd window.

However, what does NOT work anymore is to start the X server.  I had
to start it manually for testing xterm/urxvt.

Given that the X server shortcut is just a `run /usr/bin/startxwin.bat',
is it possible that the new incarnation doesn't start cmd correctly?

I built with -DDEBUG and it appears that startxwin.bat runs fine, but the "run within run" inside of startxwin.bat

%RUN% XWin -multiwindow -clipboard -silent-dup-error

fails silently.

I can confirm that the shortcut to start the X server doesn't work on my XP system with the patched run. But my shortcut for starting emacs (, which has a very similar run within run, works fine.
