Hi Markus,

This behavior is probably because nviz is a reworked wish executable.
This results in odd behavior such as running it in the background, etc. 

Probably the best way around this is to go back to using a shell script
to start nviz. I had briefly looked into this a while back but had not
completely gotten around some of the command line argument issues.
