           Summary: Core task 'exec' does not seem to spawn new window for
                    cmd.exe processes
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.6.1
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: Tom.Davies.UK@gmail.com


Overview Description: Running from a DOS command line, the following piece of 
code does not open a new window when running the run-listener.bat file:

<exec executable="C:/WINDOWS/System32/cmd.exe" spawn="true">
    	<arg value="start ${listener.dir}/run-listener.bat"/>
</exec>

The run-listener.bat file is executed, but not in a visible window.

Tried for iexplore.exe with a html file and the .exe was started in a new 
window with the html file displayed, as expected.

Steps to Reproduce:

1) Using PC / windows XP SP2, bring up a DOS command prompt.

2) Run an Ant build file containing similar code that seen above, for any .bat 
file or command.                   

Actual Results: .bat file was executed, but as an invisible process. As 
the .bat file runs an ongoing process that has a user defined termination 
(closure of the window), the process process could not be terminated and so 
the build also hung.

Expected Results: .bat file executed, but from another new DOS window, which 
can then be terminated by the user.

Build Date & Platform: Build 2005-01-17 on PC OS Windows XP SP2.
