Nicolas, was your issue with exception debugging about this Windows
specific bug?

The potential ways for fixing this are:
- Remove the WinCon code completely, users can run Hatari
  from DOS console if they want console
- Always open the WinCon console window, this may annoy people
  who never want to use the console
- Add a Windows specific option for the console window,
  e.g. "--wincon <bool>"

(I could provide a preliminary patch for the last one, but as
I don't have Windows, somebody else needs to build & test it.)
