Description n.lathiotakis 1999-05-17 15:01:46 EDT
After leaving the xsession all processes started within it
should be also killed. Thats not true for the bash started
with xterm. I usually have 5-6 xterms on my xsession and
after a few rounds of stop
and start the X there were some tenths of 'bash' still

Of course you can always kill them, either manually or using
a script, or there must be a way to prevent that happening.
But, it should not happen by default and for a novice user
thats not a nice behaviour since after some period of
uptime the number of processes will exceed the limit.

I believe this is a dup of bug #2767, which I entered on 5/14/99.

I don't know if this is related, but I've noticed that if you start
an xterm without the "&" (i.e. it's in the shell foreground), then
hit Ctrl-c, it won't die, but it will freeze up.  I'm almost 100%
sure that this situation should, and normally does, just kill the
