I started adding shell-scripts as launcher to the Gnome panel, and it works like a charm.

However, occasionally stuff in the scripts fail. When the script is launched from a terminal there is a whole bunch of output showing the error and other non-error messages which are very useful to debug whatever is going on…

Where do these end up when the script is launched from a panel launcher?

The easiest solution is probably to redirect the output from within the scripts you add as launchers.
