Under some linux distros (I'm positive for some Mdk releases), Mozilla is
compiled dumping a lot of info to stdout/stderr. Since one of the goals of
webbrowser is to give the end-user a stress-free experience, there goes the
mentioned nullification <wink>.
In a development environment, a developer should not find difficulty to reverse
that if needed.
