Sorry Sven ... if you'd used the phrase "redirected to a file" instead of
"Can anyone please tell this fellow how to get the debug output on Windows?"
I might of realized what was needed :-)
(I was expecting that the GIMP output window would trap everything when 
the envvar was set)

In any case - this: "D:\Program Files\GIMP-2.6\bin\gimp-2.6.exe" > 
d:\temp\gimplog5.txt
gives this output ...

I'm not sure whether this is showing both stdout and stderr or just stdout?
Lines above <----------> are from DnD from Desktop. Lines below are from 
DnD from an IEView tab in Firefox.
Attempted DnD from a Firefox tab to GIMP toolbox just shows the 
slashed-circle and doesn't generate any output to the log file.

Aside: can you point me to any Doc or Man page that defines what 
environment variables GIMP is looking for?
I assume that there are more settings that GIMP_LOG is looking for than 
just "dnd"?
Googling [gimp environment variable "GIMP_LOG"] returns this thread 
(from Michael Natterer)
