Something must have changed and apparently its getting worse.  I can't 
seem to duplicate the orginal behavior anymore.  With darcs 1.0.5rc1 or 
just calling uedit32 from the command line.  Weird.  I've no clue what 
could have changed.  I've not upgraded ultraedit or made any changes 
that I can think of.

Thats the behavior ultraedit has always had.  I always thought it was 
darcs doing something special in the exec that made uedit create a new 
process rather than a just a new file instance.

I don't see any nifty uedit command line options that force a new instance.

Bizzare.  Well thanks for looking at that for me. Sorry to make you look 
for something in darcs that really seems to be something local.

Guess I'll have to make darcs call notepad or something else.
