When developed, the -hide was intended for all audiences :).

Just before leaving the office today, I compiled the win32 client 
using MS VC++ 4.0 (I've been using Watcom 11.0).  When I ran this 
client with "-hide" on NT, my quick check of the task list showed no 
problem with it.  This seems to be a Watcom problem.

I will endeavour to use MS for future win32 compiles unless this can 
be solved.
