bug#549: emacsclient or emacsclientw not waiting in Windows

I checked the source code for emacsclient, and it is already full of
ifdefs for windows, one more will not do any harm :)

There could be a quite easy way to make emacsclientw to behave like
emacsclient.exe if it was started from command line, just by attaching
into the console of the calling process. If the process was not
started by console, then do not create console at all, right?

The problem is that I do not have the compilation environment set up.
If I run into too big problems with that, I may not have time.
