Do I understand correctly that you just want fgrun to fork or whatever
(exec) and just return, instead of creating a thread, forking and
waiting, so that you can run another FG ?

The implementation for run_fgfs is different on Windows and Linux/UNIX,
and I don't know much about the CreateProcess function called from
run_win32.cxx, but I suppose that's where you have to look.
