On a Fedora 25 system running the mate desktop environment
I have three terminal launchers in my top panel. The
commands executed are:
2. mate-terminal --geometry 96x30+130+280 -t MUMS -x ssh -Y mums
3. mate-terminal --geometry 96x30+90+130 -t CYBER -x ssh -Y cyber
If # 3. is launched when no other terminal session is running two
similar sized windows appear, one with the ssh session, the other
with no shell or ssh apparent. If either window is closed, the
other closes as well.
But if another terminal session, 1. and/or 2. is already running
when I launch 3., 3. comes up as a single window. Actually I
briefly see the extra window, but it immediately closes leaving
the one containing the ssh session.
I never see the extra window behavior when the nearly identical
launcher 2. is executed.
Perhaps the odd behavior of launcher 3. is somehow related to
mate-terminal running as a single process no matter how many
terminals are open. But why the different behavior of 2. vs 3.?
