wcmd unusable when DISPLAY not set. Again.

It's been a year or so since my last complaint, time
to complain again!
wcmd is currently unusable when DISPLAY is not set.
Normally, you can do
and get a nice DOS prompt. However, if you do
you get a nonfunctional DOS prompt; for each keystroke,
it gives you a new prompt. Pressing ^C terminates wine,
and leaves stdin in raw mode. This makes it really friggin' hard to
use batch files
in a cron job or any other situation where you don't have X
available. (And *please* don't tell me to set up a fake X server
for this; that should simply not be needed. )
I get pissed off about this every time I run into it, and
I'm getting tired of having to figure this out over and over
again. Grr, grr, grr. Maybe I should figure out how to make
a regression test for this so the next time somebody breaks
it, I'm not the first person to notice.
