  At least on Ubuntu, all output gets redirected to /home/(user)/.xsession-errors for general degugging/basic system information/etc. Once the .xsession-error file gets to 195KB it ignores anymore output,or input into the file if you like. I think this sort of thing is all subjective, it runs faster(?) because you think it runs faster.
