I assume you are using windows. This has nothing to do with jboss, but is a feature of the os you can turn off in the console properties. I think it is called quick edit mode or something.
Yes I am running JBoss under Windows NT OS.
However, I tried to set/reset console properties, but I am not able to change this behaviour.
Any other ideas....
umm, well the easiest way to avoid it is to not do it? Is it really causing hassles?
the solution i found was to change the configuration for the log4j and change the configuration to display only fatal error messages.
