all fixed now.
actually not all fixed. 1 entrance process floating around. there's no need
for it to hang about like a bad smell. :) i am pretty damn sure that when i
fixed it before entrance spawned off the user's login session then REPLACED
itself with entrance_login so it became small and unobtrusive. there were
not 2 entrances and entrance became entrance_login :) i'm pretty damn sure
that's how it was... :)
I think this was a result of the whole yahoo about shells a bit back..
The one that ended with entrance executing the chosen environment
directly, and not run it by /bin/sh or /bin/bash

Personally, the ~9MB out of 2GB the entrance process is hogging is
negligible, but still wasted RAM..

My biggest problem is having to execute xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap by hand all
the time. I didn't have to do that a few weeks back.
it's the WAY you execute the login process. you are spawning it as a
sub-process of entrance, rather than REPLACING entrance. remember fork()
creates a child. exec() REPLACES the current process with the new one. "runing" an app is a fork + an exec as you DONT want to replace yourself. b ut
in this case you DO.
correct... that should be what is causing the XModMap thingy, and the
extra entrance hanging around. Fix coming.
The killer blow has been dealt, no more per user owned entrance process, only good ole entrance_login and entranced and I think it should have fixed morten's issue with XModMap also, Morten can you confirm this?
