Yes. I'll test it right now.
Another strange thing with windows is that I have to make background
processes (with no gui) run under the 'windows' subsystem. One reason this
has to be done is that otherwise the system will fire up a console window
when your program is ran (you can get rid of it immediately with
::FreeConsole() but it still looks tacky). Another is that you still want
your background process to receive windows messages so that they can respond
gracefully to WM_CLOSE messages (so the user doesn't see "This program is
not responding ..." when they shut down windows).
What this boils down to is that I need to make 'gui' the default for msvc
but not for gcc. I'll try to figure this one out while I'm looking at
