Script launches multiple Terminals w/ incorrect path
Authored by: nagani on Oct 31, '01 09:07:25PM

You can avoid the double terminal windows:

In Terminal Preferences/Startup, select "Do nothing" rather than "Open a new window". Terminal will not open a new window when you launch it from the Finder, but it will if you click its icon in the Dock... (isn't this behavior close to a bug?) I use(d) Snard to launch Terminal with this preference, and it also opens a new window.

Thanks Marc for this script! This and the <tt>open .</tt> hint do impress my colleagues!
