RE: Show window for BASH script run with /bin/run

Thanks for that tip, but unfortunately, I cannot get cygstart to do the job. 
When I launch the script with cygstart --hide, it does run the window
hidden, but there does not seem to be any way to show the window again.  If
I run cygstart --show afterwards, it just launches another instance.

I am currently redirecting the output to a file, then launching notepad on
the file if there is an error, which works reasonably well.  But if I could
show the window, I could do that after a set amount of time, which would
deal with the script hanging as well.  That's not too likely, so I will live
with this for now.

Thanks for your help.
