It's necessary for all executables that read from the stdin (console), or
writes to stdout.

In this case I think the use of stdout, (and redirection of it with > ), was
the problem since Win/dos makes different newlines than unix systems.

Yes, indeed I agree!

The main GUI executable does not use output or input from the console, and we
should therefore use -mwindows for the main executable. We agree, I believe.
