Re: restarting in X Terminal

Glad somebody got back to me on this at last! Sad he has no solution (i am sure there is one)...

Abbreviated from Pavel Tsekov:

-> Every instance of which program ?

"EVERY subsequent instance" of mc. actually, after i started to consider this more, i recognized that it is not necessarily after i "quit out of X". However, once this behavior starts it will not stop, so "EVERY subsequent instance" remains true. Since it could, in fact, start right after boot-up, i assume there is some issue whereby sometimes X sets something before mc or vice versa and USUALLY it happens the right way around but SOMETIMES, for my purposes anyway, it happens the wrong way.

Yes sir.  Or at least the initial mc doesn't (from "Terminal -e mc").

Well, if Terminal opens with mc in it, any Terminal tabs you open (ctrl-T) begin (as plain shell consoles) with their pwd set to the active panel directory. But if you open a Terminal (or a Terminal tab) and type "mc", fresh tabs will just open up pwd=~.

This is not specific to "Terminal", as i said before. The real problem is mc SOMETIMES not detecting the terminal size.
