gedit shares process across desktops for same user
Last modified: 2008-04-10 03:13:24 EDT
Description of problem:
gedit uses the same process when run on different desktops (X sessions)
by the same user. This doesn't work will with gtk immodules and also
seems somewhat unintuitive for users anyway.
Further if you try to run gedit as root (with su) on two different
desktop, the second invocation causes gedit to crash.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. su -c gedit on :0
2. su -c gedit on :1
- gedit crashes
- no crash
- gedit to use one process per display
