update on this (yes, on a Mac): with r352 optained via MacTeX2009, I  
have the console in case of an error. An I also have it with r363 when  
the error is

! Undefined control sequence.
l.122 \hjghjqewkjh

But with the following error

Latexmk: -r ~/Library/TeXworks/pdflatexmkrc bad option
Latexmk: Bad options specified
latexmk -help
to get usage information

there is no console. It seems to depend on the kind of error... There  
is also no console when I try to run bibtex but the bib-file is  
wrongly specified. Maybe this makes sense...
