You pretty much ask for a One-line Terminal putting it's output into
some system log files.

I'm almost tempted to ask what's the point to run software unreliable
enough to make this an issue. ;-)
More seriously, you really want to use a Terminal in such cases to
catch the software's output. Likely, there's something to fix.

Adding a "nohup" in front of the command will allow you to close the
Terminal at any time. Just like you'd expect from a "run" Mini-Terminal.
