VisBuildCmd should honor no output flag

I have a secondary build file that has steps where the output from commands are suppressed; when called from my main build file using the mode setting "console app (visbuildcmd.exe), any CMD.exe line steps ignore the "read program output from" set to "none". In other words, my main build script gets all of the output that should have been suppressed in the secondary child script. It looks like visbuildcmd.exe is ignoring this setting and just directly piping all standard output right back to the main program.

This has the effect of both slowing down the build process horribly and cluttering the output window to where important information scrolls off.

I don't want to suppress everything (which I could by clearing the main "Capture output" flag), but that is my current work around.
