Re: [Condor-users] dos box popups on condor_q

Does your condor_config.local look something like this:

$(BIN)\cycle_cache_config.exe $(LOCAL_DIR)\condor_config.cache 30 30

It pulls down the config from a central location allowing us to
control the config on the artist machines.  I think probably between
the previous version and 7.0.5 that the Win32ProcessParam for not
creating a window was set to false, and previously it was true.

If your .local is empty, you will not have this problem.  I can run
cycle_cache_config in a sub-process, set the flag to true, and no
window is created, so I'm pretty confident about this.
