Description Gavin C. Flower 2003-07-23 08:05:52 EDT
Description of problem:
Did a <CTRL>D to exit a terminal, and the "exit" word game up and
nothing happened... then Bug buddy appeared.  The only vaguely unusual
thing was that I su'd into root and just deleted a directory with about
1500 files.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Bugzilla-Product: gnome-terminal
Bugzilla-Component: general
BugBuddy-GnomeVersion: 2.0 (2.2.1)

How reproducible:
Not sure, but I can probably reproduce a similar (?) problem with 
the Java game (see below) if you want I can send in the jar file.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. see above.
Actual results:
terminal window did not disapear, later I noticed that ALL 
my terminal windows had gone

Expected results:
that particular terminal window should vanish,
but not any other window

Additional info:
when I run a java game (that I wrote, there is nothing Linux 
or processor specific in my code) from a launcher with the 
"run in Terminal" box ticked - all terminal windows vanish 
when the game completes.  Note that this also heppened under 
Red Hat 8.

Backtrace isn't really useful without debug symbols; but if it were we'd need
the whole trace, yes.

Chances are very good this issue is fixed in latest devel packages, if you get a
chance to try those.
Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2004-11-10 17:19:39 EST

This bug is quite old now.  Given the lack of activity on this report and the
likelihood that this bug has already been fixed, I am going to close it.  If you
encounter the problem discussed in this report with Fedora Core 3 or a recent
version of gnome-terminal and vte feel free to reopen.
