10.4: Avoid a Process Completed error in Terminal
Authored by: geezusfreeek on Jul 08, '05 02:05:57PM
I found a much easier solution. Go to the Terminal preferences and change the option under "When creating a new Terminal window" from "Execute the default login shell using /usr/bin/login" to "Execute this command (specify complete path):" and type "/bin/zsh" into the field below it. This alleviates all problems (unless you absolutely must use /usr/bin/login).

It alleviates the problem, but it also has the side effect of making the shell no longer be a login shell, which means different files are sourced on startup and some other flags may be different.

Both zsh and bash have a command line parameter for working as a "login shell" (in the case of bash it is "--login").

Alas, this doesn't work at all for me. Still exits on a regular basis (about 1 out of 2).
