No: launch icedove from a terminal itself launched from a terminal. I
have a Lua script which calls "os.execute(<program>)", and as Clive
remarked, this calls a shell. The Lua script itself is called from a
terminal, and I would like everything to close when the program is
launched. I made the double terminal example, because that's basically
the same problem (it seems to me).

Yeah, I think learning bash will be definitely simpler. But I love
Lua... and don't really want to learn a new language, even though now
that I use Debian, learning bash won't be wasting time...
