Right. On Win32 nothing will appear in that windopw. Isn't it written
like that??? Please wait until bla bla, the output will appear..

That is another instance of hacking around Windows because Perl/Tk
cannot use fork/pipe on win32. Pity. So I have to stall wait for the sub
process which takes long to finish.

Best wishes
