Ah, that's great! I had completely forgotten about that option. I remember
being hit by that issue before, but I never realised at the time that I
could execute the app in a full terminal window. It might be worth enabling
that option by default when a console application is created. I'll file an
enhancement request on that.


p.s. when i said there was an active bug on the issue, I meant that I have
an open enhancment bug on it. Turns out it's completely unnecessary though
as the behaviour I want is already there. I'll find the bug and close it as
