After reboot, and reset of userprofile the problem is the same.

reproducible - if quickstart is running "soffice.exe --version" opens a new window. after closing via "X", "soffice.exe --version" produces no output.

After https://git.libreoffice.org/core/+/c13529cd2e20a0aca6f1d4cd0c85a36ab2f54afb, this is already fixed (i.e., the output will not go to a separate window, although the previous behavior with separate window was also expected - what wasn't was the problems with continuation or no output after first closing).
