I tried calling plink.exe from a batch file without success.

In fact, I no longer believe that this is a plink.exe issue.

The dos window's title bar says,
``c:\apps\wincvs\WinCVS.1.3\wincvs.exe'', which is the path to the
wincvs executable.  The window is always created minimized and blank,
without any content, which is why it took me so long to notice it.

Any other ideas?
