[mythtv] A little Mac OS X help needed

Apologies if this is more appropriate to the -users list, but I'm not 
sure if Nigel reads that one...

Well, as of last night's CVS, I finally got everything necessary for 
mythfrontend to compile on my iBook.  I think the problem may have been 
a screwed-up environment due to the existence of 2 copies of Qt (Qt/X11 
via Fink, and Qt/Mac).  Anyway, I can now run mythfrontend on my 900MHz 
G3 iBook.  Thanks, Nigel & anyone else working on the Mac OS X patches!

However, I have a question:  does anyone know offhand how I can see 
terminal output from mythfrontend?  If I launch it from a terminal 
using "open /usr/local/bin/mythfrontend.app", it seems to launch 
everything in the background, and I don't get to see the error 

I'm sure it's something simple (like 'man open'?), but I don't have 
access to a Mac ATM to check.
