Yes, with your hints, nothing was written to the console window
(only the command itself will be repeated), but the console window is
created anyway and you can see the window a fraction of time before the
Please think of the following situation:
At first, a beamer will show a total black image.
Then, the movie will be started from a remote client computer via TCP/IP.
And now, before the movie will start, the audience will see a fraction of time
this console window (empty or not) - that is unwanted.
So, it would be helped, if this console window can be a) totally switched off,
or b) created minimized.
Thanks so far
