Right now, if a thread start breakpoint is
encountered, the only consistent feedback the user
gets is a notification in the main-window's status
This is probably not adequate.

A quick solution would be to make sure the
debugger console is visible before printing a
message there so that the user may see that note.
 [this has the bad aspect that it would hide any
output the user might have been watching, which
would be a nuisance for some users]

A good solution would be to at least beep when

It would also be good to make sure the debugger
view is frontmost in its window, and make sure
that it provides feedback to indicate that the
debugger is paused.
