IDEA console and lax.stderr/stdin/stdout options in idea.lax

The fact that Aurora opens a console I never need (and sometimes confuse it with IDEA when switching) made me change the idea.lax options to the following:

lax.stderr.redirect=stderr.txt
lax.stdin.redirect=
lax.stdout.redirect=stdout.txt

This way, no console is opened and no stdout/stderr is lost either.

Isn't it a better choise for the default lax file ?

Console needed for thread dump printing. If you redirect stdoout to file,
you disable thread dumping.

So, see my previous post obout Windows Console. You can disable it.
Thanks!

Because this is a testing version, they open the console. This was more useful before they added
the mechanism for sending stack traces to them, but it may still be useful for dumping threads, etc.
In the release, no console will be opened.

Right. But how many EAP users need this so that console becomes a default for EAP builds ? My point is to change the default settings in the lax file and disable the console so that those who need to dump a thread stack may always enable it - not the other way around.

But after all what counts is what JetBrains folks need .. And I bet they need this console.
