I'm not so shure about this. At least i didn't find a solution to get 
rid of the additional window, maybe someone else knows the trick.
Starting in bash with setsid, screen or & didn't help. Even if you get 
back to a prompt, closing the shell means ending Xwin. Weird.

Does anyone know howto start a cmd.exe in Windows without getting a new 
button in taskbar?

>>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

that's what i did up to now. But Xwin somehow keeps its connection to 
the starting environment if you don't use -nodecoration.
