--- Comment #1 from Patrick Spendrin <ps_ml at gmx.de> ---
actually this is wanted behaviour. There are two (common) types of applications
on Windows: GUI applications and console apps. The console apps automatically
attach to a console (the black box) when started from e.g. explorer or from
autostart. It would be theoretically possible to change kdeinit from console to
GUI but that would also mean that we wouldn't get std streams (cout, cerr etc.)
from them anymore without deeper modification.
So the solution I would suggest is to add a wrapper executable which directly
opens kdeinit (and which is a GUI application, so it won't open a console
window). Is that ok for you?
