      That is strange. Smells like a bug in isatty().

      I wonder, after this change and starting gvim from a terminal window, do
      you also get the messages in a popup window? I would rather see them in
      the terminal in this situation. But this would require reliably
      detecting being started from a terminal, that might be difficult if
      isatty() doesn't work.
