Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 178833
Unconditional close of the program that was started by mc.ext in X11
Last modified: 2013-07-02 19:13:33 EDT
Description of problem:
When I click key on some file such as *.doc in the mc under X11 terminal the
application is functionaling in background until mc did not closed.
In other words, oowriter started by following command line
oowriter %f &
However, '> /dev/null 2>&1' should like to be substituted before '&'.
When I close mc I should not like to close background apps, such as oowriter or
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
mc from last FC3/4 updates.
I think it may be implemented as patch to mc.ext file.

Yes, I agree that '>/dev/null 2>&1' should be added to the mc.ext file in order
to not to mess up the mc where an application from background is launched from.
However, I don't see that if I launch, say oowriter, in background that it
terminates when I quit mc it was launched from.
I've added a few redirections to /dev/null in mc.ext.
Since I cannot reproduce your bug, I'm closing it NOTABUG.
Feel free to reopen it with proper reproduction case if you think you see a bug.
While now I also can not reproduce it.
Ok. I agree with NOTABUG resolution.
P.S. If I discover the reproducable case of such behaviour I reopen this report.
