I have a wondering about whether this accomplishes something I
have been desiring ... apparently not, but perhaps I have simply
not set things up right.

- I start XWin via run.exe invoking a startxwin.bat file. This avoid a
   needless console window.
- I have created a Windows shortcut for this, and given it the XWin.exe
   icon by pointing the shortcut's icon selection to XWin.exe.
- I get a *separate* instance of the XWin icon when XWin starts up,
   that is, separate from the run.exe one.

What I would *like* is for the running instance of XWin.exe to be
considered as "having the same icon", so that I don't get two instances,
one for the run.exe shortcut and another for the running XWin.

Is there another/better way I can arrange this?
