For a couple of years I have noticed that when I run programs from
within Cygwin (currently 1.5.24-2), if the program crashes (ie segfault)
then the program gets automatically restarted. This is primarily a
problem when compiling/testing a windows program I am developing
(compiled with MSVC), as I have to wait for the program to restart so I
can shut it down. It seems like this hasn't always been the behavior,
although it has been for several years (in the past, it just didn't
effect me as much).
I was wondering, is this a bug or a feature? And if it is a feature is
there a way to prevent it from happening?
