If anything this is a bug (misfeature?) in -noshowproc, since -nopause
is not an argument that show recognises and so gets passed along to the
showproc (actually the showmimeproc), but if there's no showproc...

mhl, which is the default showproc, can't understand -nopause either,
so if you're using -nopause perhaps you should invoke mhshow directly.
