I explicitly use the build command "make" because of that, but I still see four 
instances of make running, as well as six instances of bash. This is with 
message "make VERBOSE=1 test_noninteractive in the installed examples build 
tree" as the last visible text.

Not at all sure what this means, the information I get from the task manager 
does not reveal much about what these processes are actually doing (like in 
which directory etc.)
