Many thanks! Your advice was VERY helpful and saved many hours of head
banging on the wall.

After some more edits, I've got my script working perfectly. My only
remaining question now is if there is a way to disable the Gimp Output
cmd window that appears in Windows XP when running in batch mode. I
plan to set it up as an automated job, and I don't want windows being
flooded with cmd windows that say "Press a key to close this window".
Any way to disable the window or have it close automatically when the
script finishes?
