We're going to get away from cycle server anyways, so ultimately I
don't really care now that I know what's causing the problem. We'll
just go with a standard config that we deploy with the condor install
(now that we don't need to be changing it all the time).  We're
writing a new tool "Aerie" that gives the artists much better fidelity
than cycle server does.  I'm pretty sure the problem is in condor, not
cycle_cache_config, condor must create the process for
cycle_cache_config, and it's there that the 'do not create window'
flag needs to be set.  The previous version of condor (w/ same version
of cycle server) never had the problem.
