Great! Glad to see the first one resolved already, will be looking forward
to that.

For the stdout issue, I am not building a Qt app, just a standard C++ app
via Makefile, not qmake. The logs in question are from normal printf()
output. As I mentioned, the output is captured properly in the 'Application
Output' tab when not debugging, just while debugging it gets redirected to
the debug console and mixed with other debugger output.
