Richard,

Just to point out, although I'm sure you noticed;  while I do get the promised $ vars, which appears to be not 
working for you, the "-ui" flag is not being stored here, and it seems you're interested in getting that. That 
the $ values exist at all would indicate commandline, but it's not inconceivable that one might want some 
conditional behaviors based on whether or not the app is running with a gui, thus storing the "-ui" flag could 
be helpful. Such refinement is naturally only useful if the basics can be relied on, though :(

Regards,

Warren
