Description Ian Collier 2003-01-29 08:32:50 EST
Description of problem: The "-wf" option as documented in the xterm manual page doesn't work. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): XFree86-4.2.0-72, although this is a problem on all releases of Red Hat from 6 onwards (but my 5.1 box works fine). How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Use a window manager (such as fvwm) which allows interactive placing of new windows 2. type: xterm -wf -e sh -c 'sleep 5;echo hello;sleep 5' 3. wait 8 seconds before placing the new window. Actual results: The new window already says "hello" and quickly disappears. Expected results: The new window should be blank for five seconds, then say "hello" and remain for five further seconds. Additional info: This can be fixed by using the flag -DUSE_HANDSHAKE while compiling xterm/main.c.

Please report this directly to firstname.lastname@example.org for attention of the xterm maintainer. If this is something that needs to be fixed, he is the one best suited to determine the proper fix and get it into XFree86 CVS in time for 4.3.0. We provide xterm only for convenience as it is a historical legacy application some users prefer. We do not directly support it however.
