Yes it has (actually it is init.bat which has it), so if you only want 
text then that is no problem. But when you launch grass with -gui you 
cannot access the command line. And when you launch it with -text, just 
typing gis.m to get the gui does not work. Two issues that we need to 
look into.

AFAIK the ampersand '&' does not work to put a process in the background 
in cmd.exe. There is a 'start' command but I don't know if that will do 
the trick (am not in front of a windows machine right now...).
