Description of problem:
Vim sessions active when logging out don't die. (I assume gnome isn't
passing a hup to the session).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start up gnome
2.in a xterm run vim
3.logout without first exiting from vim.
Actual Results: the vim session, not only doesn't die but it goes into an
infinite loop pegging the cpu
Expected Results: vim should have died. Either by getting a hup from the
by detecting that it's stdin has been closed, or both.
It gets the correct signal with KDE and aborts. It seems than gnome doesn't pass
the right signal.
Changing component to gnome
