Maybe Andreas is looking for xterm -hold ?
Thanks for the hint to the -hold feature but it seems to work only
for real xterm. So I have probably several possibilities:
1. Make gnumed-client dependant from xterm (which seems be
useless for most of the cases.
2. Make a separate package gnumed-client debug which
depends from xterm and contains not much more than
the menu entry and this dependency.
3. File bugs against all packages that provide
x-terminal-emulator but do not show the -hold feature
(would this be reasonable)
What would you think would be a reasonable solution?
Would be option 3 also interesting for other packages? IMHO if
we have the x-terminal-emulator feature we need to fix the call
to a common set of options between all these terminal emulators.
If we do not we have not really much profit for those
applications like menu etc.
