All of these discrepancies become because you (as well as me btw), assumed
that "error console" is some kind of "error log".

Instead it seems to be something different. While I would prefer an error
log window myself (since it is soo convinient for older messages), I think
the "Error Console" is not that thing.

Wether that could be changed (making it an error log) is another question,
but if, then I'd prefer a way to log warnings (or debugging messages)
using the PDB, so I do not have to hardwire my own solution in perl
anymore.

The problem is that developers probably won't notice, because they start
gimp from an xterm often. It's "only" the users who get hurt ;*>
