Description mobrien 1999-01-17 01:06:53 UTC
Running on a pentium 83 system (16 MB ram) with runlevel 5 as default. Logging on as Root from XDM starts the control panel automatically. However, when one logs off, the control panel process does _not_ end, and it becomes a runaway process. This is a fairly significant bug since even one of these runaway processes slows down the system.. In cases where three or four of these control-panel runaway processes are running in the background, the computer can be slowed down VERY badly. The workaround is to kill the process manually before logging out as root. Alternatively, a superuser can kill all the processes later, providing that he/she knows about this problem.

I have been able to replicate this in the test lab. A runaway control panel is left for every login. SO if the root user were to login several times without closing the control-panel properly, then there is a control-panel process for each login. This has been assigned to a developer for further review.

This is a duplicate of #1008 (which is reported fixed by the new gtk)
