Cannot close XTERM with ALT+F4 when using TCSH
Fri Jun 18 10:27:00 GMT 2004
Thanks a lot Igor!!
Just sent out a question to email@example.com.
In the meantime I found out that everything works with my old TCSH version
tcsh 6.12.00 (Astron) 2002-07-23 (i386-intel-posix) options
Since I'm quite busy at the moment, I need to wait with any further research
until I get a bugfix for the new version.
Thanks and best regards
