Thanks for the information! Thats exactly what I was trying to figure
out.

I've got one last problem, then I'll post the complete howto
somewhere...

I'm kicking off zenity (GUI notification window) via shell-command and
putting it in the background. Emacs keeps opening a new window called
*Async Shell Command*, even though I thought I disabled that by
passing nil to the output buffer argument.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.
