I suspect that that is actually by design.Look at revision 1.2 of
desktop.cc and it has the same ,'s causing separate lines. I don't
really have an opinion on whats right here, but FWIW my prompt always
appears on one line - are you running textmode or tcsh or seomthing

Thats ok. We can create a process abstraction later. I'm not too worried
about refactoring incrementally. This part looks ready.

Well blow me down. Thats cool.

Please put all changes related to a single file in one place.

   (do_install): Run script...

This will not be accepted. if w32api is broken, revert it to an older
date (cd ../w32api && cvs update -D"foo" is great) or, if you have the
time, fix w32api and submit a patch.

*.d is cleaned by the clean target. Why are you adding it here as well?

See above, I'm not for or against this - I just want to understand _why_
it is breaking for you, and not globally.

All Cool.
