I found the docs for gimp python; now:

It does for me... if you enter the "print" on the console. "Print" from a script started form a menu goes to the standard output, whicn on Linux and OSX, is the terminal from which your invoked Gimp. For Windows, things are a bit more complicated, see here:

2) How can I refresh the script? So far I restart gimp but that is getting tedious.
You don't need to, as long as you don't change the registration data. The code is reloaded from the file on each execution; so your latest chnages
to the code will be taken in account.

3) Is there an online site with hints on how to debug a gimp python script?

For reference, here is the script. It apparently runs but I get no new layer and no progress/console output. I did not expect it to work first time so now I'd like some pointers on how to debug it.

from gimpfu import *

def mass_text(img) :
    print "Does this go to console?"

    pdb.gimp.progress_init("Mass text insert ...")

    font = 'Arial Bold'

    pdb.gimp.set_foreground( 1.0, 0.0, 0.0 )

    # Create a new text layer (-1 for the layer means create a new layer)
    layer = pdb.gimp_text_fontname(img, None, 0, 0, "This is my text", 10,
                                   True, 24, PIXELS, font)
    img.add_layer(layer, 0)

    "Mass Text",
    "Mass create text layers",
    "Mass Text Layer insert...",
    mass_text, menu="<Image>/Tools/MassText")



Also, the " img.add_layer(layer, 0)" isn't necessary, the layer created in  gimp_text_fontname() is added to the image automatically.
