What is the difference ? I get an extra bash window, must fork a second
xterm, then kill the first xterm and the bash shell.
Okay. I may launch future xterms from the first, instead of using again the
shortcut. That's what I plan to do. But on Unix, you can start your
environnement (kde, cde, ...) with xterms. This seems not to be possible
from Windows.
