You are right! But at the time I was trailing in another direction and
I also did not know how to acctually effect it....
Thanks to Mattias also, of course!

I have been using Lazarus/FPC for a few years on RaspberryPi units and
there I have also programmed utilities that run as command line
programs and I had no problem with these. So I was stunned by this
happening and really suspected something else entirely....
Of course these utilities were used on the RPi itself. But I was
always connecting to the RPi using TightVNC or later RealVNC.
I have never really had a monitor attached to any of my RPi units.
