 Replying to [ticket:2000 hamish]:
 > Hi,
 > the "Add command layer" option is mostly unusable on Wingrass since you
 can't see what you're typing, and becomes oddly placed to the right of the
 other layer's preferences button on all platforms after you add a regular
 map layer.

 see #1239, I thought I had fixed the first point already, the second one
 cannot be fixed easily

 > see attached screenshots.
 > also I notice if I add a "--ui" or "--help" term to the command layer
 they silently get stripped off instead of acting as expected; and if I add
 a non-image creating module command is used there (like r.mapcalc) it
 seems to be ignored, limiting the kind of imaginative light scripting you
 can do with it.

 what is 'acting as expected'?

 > finally, if you press the Del key while editing text in that line, it
 deletes they layer line and everything you just carefully typed in. :-(

 I am not going to fix any of these issues now for 6.4.3.
