[Gtk-sharp-list] Console application, hide console

I have a Windows Forms app that I am planning on converting to GTK#.
Currently, the application starts up as a console application and then
if the GUI is going to be shown, it hides the console (this is on
Windows right now). Is something like this possible on Linux? If the
app starts up in a shell, is it possible to hide the shell that it
started from? The main reason I ask is because I have another
application that launches this application for automated testing and
in that case it only needs to run in console mode. The other app will
also be GTK# and I need to launch a shell window (taking code from the
external console in MonoDevelop) so that the console mode can be seen.
Would it be better to launch a console from the application after
starting? That's a lot of fairly incoherent questions!
