I am not affected by this no, trust me it was one of the first things I 
checked when originally setting it up.

I am also basing this on the fact that I am using an older version of the 
software, before a lot of these flags and switches were introduced. Yes 
there are newer versions but I don't need the new features (yet!) and  "if 
it ain't broke............."

You might want to check the process list on your machine and make sure you
don't have a million CMD processes running.  The fact that they stayed,
tells me you probably do.  You might want to look at what I posted a few
minutes ago to get that to stop happening.
