Killing Cygwin Shell Window with mouse leaves bash.exe running.
which can be seen from W2K task manager. How can I disable
X -button from the Shell Windows so that the user is forced
to TYPE "exit" on command prompt? Recompiling?
Recompile what? Cmd exe? Bash is a shell and knows nothing about the
Windows Console "X" button.
Show them [Ctrl-d] which is anyway faster than grabbing the mouse. If
they still do it - hit 'em on the head with a stick and let them write
a thousand time "I won't ever try to close a shell with my mouse".
I don't think that the question is really that stupid. People are used
to the mouse.
So, shouldn't the KILL message be propagated to its child process?
bash could react then. Or is it only propagated if bash would register
itself as an (invisible) window, just to receive those parent messages?
Just on --login of course.
If so, it should be added IMHO. I know it's stupid, but bash is the most
used login shell, which should react somehow.
Sorry, haven't actually tried out the reported problem.
Of course the Pekka Niiranen report is bogus.
The default cygwin.bat shell, starting bash --login -i via cmd.exe,
will kill successfully cmd.exe and its child bash.exe when killing the
window via the mouse [x] or via the pulldown.
