           Summary: closing Konsole executes unconfirmed command when su-ed
                    to root!!
           Product: konsole
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: SuSE RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: konsole-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: seeksthemoon at everymail.net

Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.0.5)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
Compiler:          gcc 3.2 
OS:          Linux

When you're logged in to KDE as normal (= not root) user, open Konsole and change to root (via "su"-command) there is the following (in my opinion severe) bug:

- Type in a command (doesn't matter which one, e.g. "ls > list.txt" or "halt" or something else) but don't press ENTER to confirm it
- Now close Konsole by klicking the "x"-Button or choosing "close session" or "quit" in the "session"-menu
- THE COMMAND WILL BE EXECUTED THOUGH YOU DON'T WANT IT (because you did not confirm it with ENTER and you just wanted to close Konsole)!

This happens in those types of Konsole:
"Shell" and
"Linux Console"

not in "Screen Session" and "root console" (because in root console you have to type "exit" for closing it)

It doesn't matter how much sessions are running in the Konsole
