It is a console application.  If you invoke it via the desktop you'll
actually see a console window flash.  gdb calls FreeConsole when it
thinks that the initialization has completed but there are actually
some cases where insight will die silently after having printed an
error message into the ether.

At one time, there was a cvs checkin war in Cygnus where people were
adding the '-mwindows' option to the link line in Makefile.in and the
next checkin would remove it.
