.xinitrc and launching apps
Authored by: MasterUltan on Jan 13, '03 11:31:54PM

The "exec" line should be last and does not need a trailing "&". The exec command essentially hands the process over to the command being "exec"-ed. Control is returned when that process finishes. In this case, your shells don't start up until AFTER the window manager is killed or quit.
