Just tested on my own system, but for me running pythonw *without*
--standalone works just fine. Executed with a shortcut terminal pops
up briefly but closes automatically when zim window pops up. (Which
makes sense as the initial process quits ones the background process
is started.)

Using python 2.7 on windows 7.
