Install dev build and do not disable ergonomics.

Open the Kenai window and log in.  When your projects list shows up, click the get link to download the source from SVN
e.g. try 

I would like to see the output of the svn process as I download.  However, there is no action on the window menu to open
the output window, no output submenu, etc.

You can use Ctrl+4 to open OW.

jtulach told me that current behavior is according to specs and closed it. If you want the menu visible, reopen and
reassign to ergonomics where it belongs.
