Bash 3.0-2 and kill
Sun Jun 26 04:58:00 GMT 2005
Suppose that the command "ps" shows that an application, has a PID
kill -9 1234
kills the application but also the bash (3.0-2), i.e. closes the windows
in which bash is running (for example the dos box or xterm).
In some cases, in $HOME there is bash.exe.stackdump.
After these things I have reinstalled Bash 2.05b-17 with which that
command kills only the application and not bash
(so that one can continue to work without restarting bash).
The system is W2K SP4.
I have almost all Cygwin packages installed (only gcc-test-suite,
ghosthscript native, regex, xwinclip are not installed)
Currently I am usin the snapshot 20050624 (after 20050621), but as I wrote
even with Cygwin 1.5.16-1, 1.5.17-1 bash 3.0-2 is killed.
The Cygwin configuration is quite simple (what setup configures after
