For me it works on Linux.

I wonder whether this is a ChucK issue or a OSX one. I don't think
ChucK should be aware of where the output is being send. I wonder
whether stderr is being routed to some central log file here.

Anyway, I agree it is a bug; It's text output and should go to the
console unless we pipe it to a file or something like grep, that's how
UNIX does things and the way in which everything makes everything else
more useful.
