I have a strange problem with our SuSE 8.0 system:
I open a "konsole" (kde terminal) on localhost
In konsole I ssh (with X11Forwarding) to a remote host
start xemacs on remote host with ampersand (xemacs &)
close the konsole with the "x" button in the upper right
Now the xemacs windows disappears.
But on the remote host xemacs is still running and consumes a lot CPU time.
I would have expected that the "x" button kills the konsole which kills ssh
which closes the X11-tunnel which kills xemacs on the remote site.
The problem can be solved by not using the X11Tunnel (by setting DISPLAY).
But I obviously do not like this solution.
Or by omitting the ampersand (which I do not like either).
What goes wrong?
