after starting xterm and sshing to a host using x11 tunnelling, I can no long...


Description Jason Keltz 2006-09-25 18:40:41 CEST
If I ssh to another host with X11 forwarding, and I start up an xterm, I cannot close the window by clicking on the Window close button.  This same behaviour does not hold true for Xfce Terminal.  This holds true for our existing install as well.

I'm sorry, how this could a bug with window manager?
Comment 2 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2006-09-25 19:36:03 CEST
FYI the window manager uses the std WM_DELETE_WINDOW message to inform the application that it should terminate.

The application may or may not terminate. In the case you describen xterm is not responding the WM_DELETE_WINDOW message. The problem doesn't lie in the window manager...
