The hanging Angband will also resume if I exit the command prompt.

So I can do something like:
start -> run -> cmd

in the new command prompt:
F:\Documents and Settings\Frank>cd i:\games\angsrc\trunk
F:\Documents and Settings\Frank>i:
I:\games\angsrc\trunk>start angband

(angband hangs)

I:\games\angsrc\trunk>exit

(command prompt closes and angband pops up!)

P.S. Thanks for the help, Pete.
I haven't got a copy of XP at the moment, so I don't know how to help, but this is truly bizarre behaviour. Does this also happen for e.g. 3.0.6 or 2.9.3?
