Description Andy Shevchenko 2006-01-24 13:01:04 EST
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 
smth else.

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.
Comment 4 Andy Shevchenko 2006-01-31 08:58:00 EST
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.
