Script tools 'close this dialog...'

Hi folks,

When you create and run a script tool in ArcCatalog, it launches a geoprocessing window where you can print messages from your script.  This window has a checkbox option to 'Close this dialog when completed successfully'.   This checked by default.  

When I ran a script tool that operated really quickly, this window disappeared before I got the chance to uncheck the box.  (I hacked the problem by running it on a slower script tool so that I could grab it. Once it's unchecked for one tool, it's unchecked for all.) But I was wondering if there's another way to change this setting without having to run a slow script tool.   I seem to remember there used to be an option to do with this under the 'Geoprcessing' menu, but I couldn't find it any more.
