This happens on any Windows system with both MSYS and cygwin.
standard output console type never worked on windows, see bug 148204, I will re-disable it in new infrastructure
not a regression
The problem here is that with msys on windows "internal terminal" is also not available (see bug 193241), so only external terminal really works for debugging.
But how to indicate that in GUI?
IT IS A REGRESSION! Previously a user can not only enter anything into Output window while debugging. Now it's impossible to debug any application using Standard Output.
Sorry for mistake "Previously a user could not..."
*** Bug 194273 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
now on Windows Standard Output is switched to External Terminal and warning is shown to the user.
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201101140000* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)

Added to the Known Issues: C/C++ section of the NetBeans IDE 7.0 Beta 2 Release Notes as follows:
Issue #193740: On Windows platform, the "Use external terminal" warning displays when the Standard Output console is used for debugging.
Description: The Standard Output console type is not used for debugging on Windows platform.
Workaround: Use the Internal Terminal in the CYGWIN environment and the External Terminal in the MSYS environment instead.
