Please review the fix for enhancement [1] at [2]. The idea of this 
enhancement is to print out to a file the arguments passed to javac is 
there is a fatal error or if a hidden option is passed to the compiler. 
This could be very helpful to reproduce some bugs reported by users.


PS, thanks to Jon for offline feedback an suggestions
