just to illustrate my point, that current way of notifying user about
process run is not intuitive.
Take look at this screenshot:
Is r.watershed still runing? (Those, who know GRASS enough, will
notice, that "RUN" button is enabled - r.watershed is not running
anymore) Is r.watershed finised it's run with success? And what would
happen, if gis.m output window is covered (behind) other windows? I
have moved output window to top, but normaly it would be behind all
other gis.m windows.
r.watershed isn't worst module - just run some of v.* modules, that
require rebuilding tolopgy and picture will become worse, as output in
gis.m output window just scrolls up with every line and that progress
bar/runner just goes far, far away.
Just my 0.002,
