The TCC icon?

Rex, once upon a time you went out of your way to ensure that the JPSoft icon showed in 4NT's console. I think you eased up on that and it had been working satisfactorily for quite a while. Now, with 9.02.154, the icon reverts to the CMD icon after any subshell ends. It's really annoying. Are you going to fix it?

Yep, I also see this behavior. This is a regression in 9.02.154.

You requested that change in build 154.

I requested nothing. I made a vague (and untried) suggestion which might have
fixed another poster's problem with TSE's icon not returning after shelling to
and returning from TCC. If you tried it, it apparently didn't work; the OP's
problem remains and other things got worse.

I still think it should be each app's responsibility (not TCC's) to see to it
that its icon appears when it should. If I were him I'd be talking to the
author of TSE.

That said, I made another suggestion that does work in simple tests. In TCC it
would go something like this:

At startup

hIcon = GetConsoleIcon();
hOldIcon = DuplicateIcon(0, hIcon); // or CopyIcon(hIcon);
SetConsoleIcon(hTccIcon);

At shutdown

SetConsoleIcon(hOldIcon);

I don't know if it'll work in TCC but in a test app whatever icon is there at
startup returns when the app exits.

There's something to try. If you want a request then please go back to the way
bulid 153 did it.

Whatever was or was not requested, Vince's observation is accurate, the icon in the taskbar and the TCC window reverts to the CMD icon upon returning from a subshell. It doesn't impair functionality, but it is an irritant. Having sprung for the Merc, I definitely don't want a Lada logo emblazoned on my wheels. Since build 154 I've started opening a new shell - with the right icon - and closed the compromised shell, just for looks and bragging rights.

Er... I am subscribed via e-mail, and I never received the quoted message
attributed to Peter Bratton. That makes me wonder how many other messages I
might have missed...

Also, Rex, honestly, *PLEASE* fix the duplicate 'From' headers. I can do it
for you if you want.
