FS#234 - The +GD flag does not work

The +GD flag gives me an “Invalid parameter” error, whether on the command line or in a .ini file.

Debug_File= still works.

I reported this in povray.beta-test, but did not receive a response.

The problem occurs in both Windows 7 and in Linux.

Seems related to a copy-paste repetion of code:

				shd.consoleoutput[DEBUG_STREAM] = obj.GetBool(kPOVAttrib_DebugConsole);
				shd.consoleoutput[FATAL_STREAM] = obj.GetBool(kPOVAttrib_FatalConsole);
				shd.consoleoutput[RENDER_STREAM] = obj.GetBool(kPOVAttrib_RenderConsole);
				shd.consoleoutput[STATISTIC_STREAM] = obj.GetBool(kPOVAttrib_StatisticsConsole);
				shd.consoleoutput[WARNING_STREAM] = obj.GetBool(kPOVAttrib_WarningConsole);

Look carefully (in renderfrontend.cpp , source/frontend): The last test is about existence of Debug, but getBool is about Warning ...

Shouldn't it be Warning on both (test & getBool) ?

Should be fixed with #5687 (post 3.7RC6) (I tested it, but more tests are welcome)

I have used this flag many times since RC7 was released, and have had no problems.
