[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#726381: xfce4-terminal automatically backgrounds itself

Package: xfce4-terminal
Version: 0.6.2-3
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I sometimes write scripts that pop-up a terminal emulator that
will continue after the process in the terminal is terminated.
However that seems to be impossible with xfce4-terminal because
as far as I can see if an xfce4-terminal is already open the
launched proces seems to instruct the already running process
to open an new window at which point the newly launched process
disappears. I consider this a bug since that behaviour is not
documented and it makes it impossible to use xfce4-terminal
as a replacement for xterm in scripts.
