[plt-scheme] Hide/disable output window of compiled executables

I am told the console pops up only if your definitions window  
contains expressions that produce values. And indeed, I can confirm  
this for the svn version on my Mac.

Here is the program I ran:

(require 2htdp/universe)

(define ufo (overlay (rectangle 40 4 'solid 'green) (circle 5 'solid  
(define mt (empty-scene 200 200))

(define run
   (big-bang 100
             (on-draw (lambda (p) (place-image ufo 50 p mt)))
             (on-tick sub1)
             (stop-when zero?)))

Please try for yourself and holler if it doesn't work. -- Matthias
