           Summary: konsole exits on ^C and ^D when started from file
                    manager tools.
           Product: konsole
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: konsole-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: glyn at castro-design.co.uk

Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.2.0)
Installed from:    Unlisted Binary Package
Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.2 CFLAGS="-march=i686 -O2 -pipe; CXXFLAGS="-march=i686 -O2 -pipe"
OS:          Linux

When a konsole is started from file manager Tools->'Open Terminal', the konsole does not handle ^C and ^D correctly. ^C closes konsole, instead of closing an application started from the konsole. ^D does the same. This does not happen when the konsole is started from the KDE panel, start menu, or from 'Run Command'.

The problem also occurs if I select 'Quick Browser'->'Home Folder'->'Open in Terminal'.

If a second terminal is opened from the first, using 'Session'->'New Shell', the new terminal works correctly, but the original konsole still closes both on ^C or ^D.

This can be worked around by changing the default terminal emulator to xterm.
