 |The "trick" is to allways have a console-window open.

or 20 .. so its never far .. ;)

 |You can use "xterm" with the "-e" option. Like this:
 |"xterm -e pd -alsa", which first starts an xterm console which again
 |runs pd with alsa.

yeah but the problem with -e might be that if pd quits/crashes/etc, the
xterm will disappear as well instantly and with it all maybe valuable
debugging information...
