Hi Eliot,

thank you for your input. 8-)

I was using run.exe too. run.exe used to hide the window and the task bar entry.
But since my upgrade from Cygwin 1.7.9 to 1.7.15, run.exe only hides the window but not the task bar entry, when invoked from the
Startup menu in some cases.

This seems buggy, see my thread:
But I don't have the impression that a developer accepted this as bug.

Do you have a suggestion how to avoid this situation?
