Bug Description

Binary package hint: euca2ools

$ euca-get-console-output i-51F80895 ; echo $?
DefaultJavaComponent: Can't find registered object: i-51F80895 in VmInstances
$ euca-get-console-output i-51F80895 >/dev/null ; echo $?

The error message should have gone to stderr. This can be a problem for programs that invoke the tools, see bug 559244 as an example.
