No. FreeConsole() doesn't destroy the console window but detach
the process from the window. It destroys the window only when
there is no process attached with it.

When we execute sshd on bash, my patch detach sshd from the
console window attached with bash. The window will remains until
bash terminates.

I'm afraid that it would hide the window before bash terminates
if we use ShowWindow(hConsole, SW_HIDE) instead of FreeConsole().
