4.76-0.6.2: netscape wrapper kills netscape process when started on a different DISPLAY.
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:17:53 EDT
When I have Netscape running in one X server and I run /usr/bin/netscape as
the same user on the same machine, but on another X server, the
/usr/bin/netscape wrapper first tries to run Netscape with xfeDoCommand,
which fails because there is no Netscape running under that X server yet,
and then proceeds to the killstale functon which kills the instance of
Netscape happily running under different X server.
I use netscape-communicator-0.76-0.6.2 on RH 6.2 + all updates.
This will probably not be fixed at this point.
