In a later stage the console might be removed. For now it is used to log 
our (debug) messages.

If everything works OK you would heve seen more. Howerver there is a poblem 
in the win32 verion (and not in linux version) which results in a continues 
update of the toolbar. You've probably seen the huge amout of messages this 
produces. There is currently worked on but it is hard to track down since 
most development takes place under Linux.
Watch this list to see when it is fixed.
