From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (Windows NT 5.0; U)

Description of problem:
Using graphical login (runlevel 5). In that case the event described in Summary occurs. Not sure this 
is a bash problem; but this was the closest I could get

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Select graphical login during installation (probably id:5:initdefault: line in /etc/inittab)
2.Insert line "emacs <any existing text file name> &" at end of .bash_profile (to be more specific, let
   user be nonroot)

Actual Results:  Two emacs windows are open with same contents. The ps -A command also reveals two emacs
processes running

Expected Results:  In RH Linux 7.0, one emacs window was open

Additional info:

I am not sure this is related; but I have also noticed keyboard hangs during emacs operation in RH 
Linux 7.1 (keyboard does not work; mouse works). Since this bug is not reproducible, I have not 
investigated it

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-05-31 07:22:42 UTC
Yes, bashrc did get executed twice. This is fixed in rawhide (you need to 
update the bash and setup packages).
