I think you'll find that the command has exited, but the window remains
open (to let you read the output) -- i.e. if you schedule any command-
line tool, the same thing will happen.  If this is the case, I believe
there's an option that will cause the window to close on program exit,
but since I try to avoid MS products, I don't know what it is.  If no
one here chimes in with an answer, I'd suggest asking an MS-specific
forum about this.
