Stderr.txt not working for SDL 1.3 debug builds?

I am trying to look at the event info for testsprite2.cpp using the “–info
all” command line arg. If I run it under the debugger I don’t see any
output in the debug window, and if I run it from the command line I don’t
get a stderr.txt file generated.

I have seen some posts about this being removed or changed for SDL 1.3, and
Sam made a comment about editing SDLmain.cpp saying there are explicit
comments about it, but in looking at the latest SDLmain.cpp there is
nothing. And since I am building the debug version I would expect the
default behavior to write to the stderr.txt file like it did previously.
