I changed the properties of my Event Ghost shortcut and set Run to Minimized. I rebooted my PC, and the MCE Remote button presses are shown as received by Event Ghost (the green triangle icon in system tray turns red), but nothing happens to GB-PVR. I double-click on the icon, and Event Ghost won't open up. I have to kill the process. I changed properties of the shortcut and set Run to Normal window, and then it works, but it doesn't start minimized.
You must have a bug in your code for when it starts minimized. Maybe add an option for "start minimized" in the Options screen?
