to be precise, the console is created when winedbg launches the child
process so that winedbg and the debuggee have too seperate consoles for
If setting up wineconsole is an issue, you can:
1/ either remove the CREATE_NEW_CONSOLE flag in winedbg/winedbg.c
2/ fire your executable from the command line, and attaching to it later
on. This wouldn't work easily with ddd (still doable, but with pain)
you cannot set a bp because since the creation of the console fails, the
creation of the debuggee from winedbg fails too.
