Bug#620984: wmii: lxterminal misbehaves with setsid
The reported misbehaviour is peculiar to the terminal
emulator lxterminal(1), almost certainly due to the fact
that wmii_3.9.2+debian-3 is encapsulating the terminal
invocation inside setsid(1). A standard emulator like
lxterm(1), i.e., the locale-sensing wrapper for xterm(1),
does not exhibit this failure.
The use of lxterminal(1) presently leaves a zombie:
$ ps ax | grep term
28189 ? Ssl 0:00 lxterminal
28190 ? Z 0:00 [lxterminal] <defunct>
29090 pts/0 S+ 0:00 /bin/grep term
The use of lxterm(1) will not leave a zombie process
behind in that manner.
