Description Steve Dum 2002-11-21 17:07:17 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020827

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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start up gnome 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
shutdown or
by detecting that it's stdin has been closed, or both.

Additional info:

It gets the correct signal with KDE and aborts. It seems than gnome doesn't pass
the right signal.
Changing component to gnome
