Ok then, I want a solution where I cannot use screen because it is not
installed or because I forgot to run it before starting a shell.
There. Now will I get some help?
Let's assume you could not run or forgot to run screen: a quick Google
search for "cygwin bash ssh zombie sessions" leads to the conclusion
that you're not the first one who noticed that.
I attempted to Google the problem before I ever posted to this list. Evidently
didn't have the right words. But even after reading the results of above, I
still dont know...
Is this a known problem for which there is a fix?
Is this a known problem that no-one can fix?
Is this a known problem that no-one is willing to fix?
Well, probably you
should use screen.
I'm glad I have you to tell me what I should do. I feel so loved.
