Review request for Konsole, Kurt Hindenburg and Oswald Buddenhagen.

Bugs: 185140

Repository: konsole


According to http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.comp.shells.bash.bugs/12602 (from https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=185140), sending EOF is the appropriate way of telling e. g. bash to quit.

I wasn't able to get KPtyProcess to send that in a nice way (calling setStandardInputFile(QProcess::nullDevice(), for example), so we fetch the EOF character manually with tcgetattr and send that.

In addition KPtyProcess doesn't support waitForFinished(), so we have to spin the event loop manually for KPtyProcess to notice that the child is finished.

Running backgrounded processes (e. g. launching «kate&») and then closing the tab/window now leaves the backgrounded tasks running, which is apparently The Right Thing.
