Except when they have really serious errors.
I once had an X problem that prevented Openoffice from working. It
showed no window, output nothing, and terminated immediately with an
exit code of zero. In other words it behaved just like the command
"true". That's going a bit too far.
(I wrote a bug report and was told that Openoffice was fixed to write
an error message and return an error code.)
that's why a graphical application with the ability to gibe out debug
infos if started in a terminal has to have a -v or whatever parameter
but just shut up in a normal call
