USBMONITOR command

I have just resumed using this command, and discovered that the command it
executes when a monitored event occurs does not inherit the UnicodeOutput=No
setting. How do I force an ECHO command to append ASCII, not Unicode, to an
existing ASCII log, short of executing "option //UnicodeOutput=no" by the
command on each event?

Another issue: the batch file my command calls executes a single MSGBOX
command, but two consecutive messageboxes pop up, the second after the first
is closed.

Lastly: HELP for each of the "monitor" commands states that they each create
"environment variables", but aren't the variables created actually "internal
variables"?

The monitoring commands have nothing to do with Unicode output; that's set
either at startup time or interactively with UnicodeOutput. ECHO doesn't
have any idea whether it's outputting ASCII or Unicode; it just passes the
STDOUT to the generic output routine, which tests for redirection and then
for UnicodeOutput.

Please post a minimal batch file here that shows the problem you're seeing.

Not reproducible here -- I'd have to see your batch file.

No, they're environment variables. (Though with the leading _ they look
superficially like internal variables.)
