The properties do get propagated to the application, but it's not the
application you want.  The runemacs.exe application indeed runs
minimized, but you want emacs.exe to start minimized instead.  That's
not something that can work without us coding it specifically to work
this way, as in general these properties are not automatically passed
from parent process to the child processes.

I installed a change to run Emacs with the --iconic option when
runemacs.exe is invoked "minimized".  So some next binary of a
development snapshot you will download will work as you expect.

With all the issues in this bug report now resolved, I'm closing it.
