I didn't want to get into the details of what works and what doesn't
work. You are right that it seems to work fine with "-query", but it
doesn't work with other options. I don't know what is going on, but I
suspect we can probably fix it by modifying either run.exe or
XWin.exe... but the other solution is to just use bash so we can do
"XWin &" instead of using start or run. Find whatever solution you need
for the time being until it can be fixed properly.
