The 'Enable Debug' wording is litle misleading, in fact it starts a kaind of
logging no debugging. So 'Enabling Logging' will be more accurate.

proposed patch v1
The correct way to get debug output is IMHO the logging system. The attached patch removes the "Debug"-Option completely. A normal user does not need it. And if it is needed, it's easy enough to enable logging. To get the old output, just set the logger
to fine and the old output is written to the netbeans log file.
patch committed as: http://hg.netbeans.org/core-main/rev/a5d5a83fcf27
Integrated into 'main-silver', will be available in build *201501230002* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
