How is the gnome-terminal meant to know which shells to send the signal
to? You cannot send a signal to every shell process that is running,
since that might kill shells that are not being run under the
control(sic) of gnome-terminal. There may be a solution to this, but I
cannot immediately see how you are intending to kill off shells without
causing collateral damage.
