forking vim gui

Having successfully compiled my fav editor vim a while back.
How come when I launch it as 'gvim' or 'vim -g' which causes vim to fork the
gui version I get an exception.
However if I launch it as 'vim -g -f' which launches the gui but doesn't
return to the shell it work fine.
But if I launch it as above but use bash to background it 'vim -g -f &' it all
works fine and I get bash back?

vim5.0m, Sergey's latest dll and bash, win95 16MB

any ideas?
