Hang on, i've created a program item that goes z:\apps\bovine\guiwin16
-run
It loads up, (at least it loads up winsock.dll) and then disappears. It
felt like it was running (system was sluggish), so i assumed it was
running hidden even though there was no hidden option.

So was it running visually hidden, or not running at all?
