This just in...since I've had little time lately for much besides family & seeking employment.
Running Msys configure. After starting a configure...
I minimized Msys/rxvt (command line prompt) in order to do some other things besides stare at the
Msys command line prompt.
As I write this, Msys command line prompt is running minimized.
Everytime sh.exe is launched, it is launched, not in the background, as I would have expected, but in the
foreground, popping sh.exe windows which are executing things like cc1.exe and as.exe.
This behaviour tends to be irritating, at the very least, because I can barely type a sentence before sh.exe
pops into the foreground.
This is a consistent behaviour which seems to be easy to reproduce everytime that Msys is not actively
running in foreground.
Any ideas why this might occur?
