According to Charles Wilson on 8/10/2009 11:51 AM:
The run package provides a simple application to launch console programs
with their console hidden.
I'm now seeing urxvt-X consume 100% CPU when it is invoked via /bin/run on
a batch script.  Reverting to run-1.1.10-1 fixes the CPU hogging.  This
was on XP SP3 under cygwin 1.5; similar 100% CPU usage results for
run-1.1.11-10 under cygwin 1.7.

I can confirm this. It only happens with urxvt-X for some reason. I don't see this for xterm, or xeyes, or xclock.

I'm seeing performance problems in emacs when started via the new run.exe under X. I have a desktop shortcut whose target is

D:\cygwin-1.7\bin\run.exe D:\cygwin-1.7\home\kbrown\bin\startemacs.bat

Here startemacs.bat is:

$ cat bin/startemacs.bat
@echo off
SET CYGWIN_ROOT=\cygwin-1.7
SET RUN=%CYGWIN_ROOT%\bin\run -p /usr/bin
%RUN% bash -l -c /usr/bin/emacs&

I'm running XP SP3. To reproduce the problem:

1. Start the X server by using the start menu shortcut (which invokes run.exe on startxwin.bat).
2. Start emacs by the shortcut above.
3. List the home directory via C-x d [RET].
4. Repeatedly press the space bar to scroll through the list. There is often a delay before the cursor moves.

Reverting to run-1.1.10-1 solves the problem.
