Re: Bash.exe stays open after Putty is closed
Killing putty with Alt-F4 is the same as losing connectivity, or putty
crashing (rare as that is), or any of several other scenarios where
there is abnormal termination. Does bash remain running under any
abnormal termination? If so, that's a bug. If not, what makes things
like connectivity loss different from closing putty with Alt-f4?
I agree, any cause of termination of the window should kill the children
like bash. However, I'm curious, why are you using Putty instead of just
ssh? I assume you mean Putty on Windows. If you have Cygwin why not
simply do ssh <host>?
