Unfortunately, no. As long as the "At Startup" option in the
configuration dialog is set to "Open Shell Window", a shell window
will always be opened.
I agree that there should be a command-line option to explicitly not
open a shell window. I'll post a feature request to SourceForge.
If you want this quickly, I can work up a quick patch for you.
