You have to love how, when a self-labelled Linux newbie asks, on a
Desktop Interface mailing list, how to perform a task, he gets an answer
regarding command-line deep UNIX-foo tools.

Perhaps a more GUI oriented application would be in order.. (is there
something for automatic rsync'ing in GTK/GNOME?)

You're absolutely right. Why didn't you suggest one?

(gnome-network may eventually include one, but the software map entry is
not encouraging.)

Hmm...I always thought that it would be great to have a nautilus view
(like apotheke) on that. I started to do some outlining over the last
few months, tough I did not yet start coding on it :(

But, whats the general opinion on having a rsync-view?

Problems with ksh93 and gnome-terminal

I start gnome with gdm and allow the master gdm process to source all of
my .profile/.kshrc/etc scripts.  My gnome-terminal normally runs with
three open windows.

I find that when I exit gnome, gnome-terminal exits but none of the
ksh93 processes exit.  They instead get inheirited by init.  This means
that after several days, I have *lots* of ksh processes hanging around
doing nothing.

I do not want to use the login shell option to gnome-terminal as that
involves a lot of unnecessary overhead.  I think I need gnome-terminal
to send HUP to all subshells when it exits.  The ksh processes all start
up in their own process group, so they do not automatically receive any
signals from gnome-terminal.

Does anyone have any insight into gnome-terminal operation, or do I need
to go diving into the source?

Using Enlightenment 0.16.x with Gnome 2.x is _NOT_ supported, AFAIK,
since E doesn't and will not conform with standards defined by
FreeDesktop.org. I have no idea if this still applies with the status of
0.17.

I tried an experiment.  I clicked on the "close window" button of the 
running gnome-terminal and verified that all subshells died.  However, 
when I click on the "logout" button on my Panel, the gnome-terminal dies 
but the subshells continue on (and on, and on, ...)

What does gnome-terminal do differently in these two cases?  I tried to 
look through the source but I cannot see any place where gnome-terminal 
actually signals the subprocesses running in its tabbed windows.

This situation causes a lot of difficulty.  For instance, if I run 
screen in a window, since exiting gnome-terminal does not signal the
