After upgrading, I noticed a difference with the tty usage compared to
1.5.5. Now, don't get me wrong, nothing's broke that I can tell, but
I'm just a little bit curious about the following:
When I open an rxvt shell prompt, it appears that each one has allocated
two ttys. For example, with 3 rxvts running:
16:51:19 up 15 days, 23:19, 6 users, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
USER TTY FROM LOGIN@ IDLE JCPU PCPU WHAT
brian tty0 BOOCH 15:57 0.00s 0.00s ? -
brian tty1 :0 15:57 0.00s 0.00s ? -
brian tty2 BOOCH 15:58 0.00s 0.00s ? -
brian tty3 :0 15:58 0.00s 0.00s ? -
brian tty4 BOOCH 16:51 0.00s 0.00s ? -
brian tty5 :0 16:51 0.00s 0.00s ? -
I don't have an X server running at all. My DISPLAY variable is set to
"localhost:0.0" but it doesn't seem to matter if I remove that from
.profile. My $CYGWIN is set to "ntsec tty" and this is under w2k:
CYGWIN_NT-5.0 booch 1.5.6(0.108/3/2) 2004-01-19 00:43 i686 unknown
So, just out of curiosity, why two ttys for each rxvt?
