Just as a side note, setting QuickEdit on by default is not as good idea  
as it may appear. If you click or drag accidentally with the mouse over  
the console, the running program is blocked indefinitely (waiting for the  
selection to be completed; someone has to press <Enter>). Not very nice if  
you launched a long process and are waiting for it to finish...
