Zeus Server: How to fix "inappropriate ioctl for device" error

Hello Devs:

I have zeus installed in my Gemset. I do Tools > Run Zeus Server.

The Run window pops ups, and it keeps dumping this, over and over, to the console:

inappropriate ioctl for deviceinappropriate ioctl for device [0m [K
[ready] inappropriate ioctl for device[crashed] [running] [connecting] [waiting]
bootinappropriate ioctl for device [0m [K

└── default_bundle
    ├── test_environment
    │   ├── test_helper
    │   └── cucumber_environment
    └── development_environment
        └── prerake
Available Commands: [waiting] [crashed] [ready]
zeus test (alias: rspec, testrb)
zeus cucumber
zeus generate (alias: g)
zeus runner (alias: r)
zeus rake
zeus console (alias: c)
zeus dbconsole
zeus server (alias: s)
zeus destroy (alias: d)

It just repeats that. The text is always a pinkish color, except for the line "inappropriate ioctl for device". That text alternates between green, white, red, pink, and magenta.

I have let it run for three minutes and it does not change from this pattern.

I'd check if the problem reproducible in console or not.  If it is that you should ask Zeus community, if it is not please file a bug with a small test project which reproduces the problem.

Regards, Oleg.
