[wingide-users] The dreaded black box

My application must run a DOS (console) app to accomplish certain things. It 
uses subprocess.Popen("consoleapp.exe") to accomplish the task. It runs fine 
but pops an ugly "DOS black box" on top of everything until it terminates - 
but only when run outside Wing. When run inside Wing the output is captured by 
Wing and no "black box" ever appears.

Two questions:
- How does Wing suppress the "black box"?
- Can I turn this behavior on/off so my app behaves the same inside & outside
