In some situations you may want to be able to use the -nw option with runemacs.exe.

What are those situations?  We cannot judge the importance of applying
this patch without knowing when the current behavior is an annoyance.

The situation where I thought the current behaviour was a problem was when specifying --alternate-editor to emacsclient. If the user for some reason (which I might not understand ;-) wants to run emacs in a console, and this should be started through the use of --alternate-editor then the simplest way (from a user perspective) to get this working might be to do something like

   set alternate_editor=runemacs.exe -nw

If my patch is applied of course. Otherwise the user just gets into the trouble we discussed before (hidden emacs or a crashing emacs).
