By sending CONOUT$ to NMOUTPUT I think this means you dont get any
intermediate output on the console screen. So why did you make this
change? I find it quite helpful to be able to watch the progress of a run.

Would you please give a brief explanation of why you made these changes
for Windows and Linux?
