10.3: Desktop screensaver trick breaks Exposť
Authored by: rae on Nov 14, '03 02:04:41AM
I think this may have stopped working for you because the default shell environment changed for Panther to bash instead of tcsh, and I *think* the default bash behaviour is to kill all background processes when you exit the shell.

Can anyone confirm this? I'm a tcsh user myself.

If this is the case, then changing your shell (back) to tcsh would fix it (using the chsh command). If you prefer bash, I am sure there is an option you can set to prevent this behaviour. Perhaps someone can post this info for people who prefer bash?
