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.

Best regards,
  Mats Erik Andersson, DM
