Description D Wollmann 2003-05-16 14:49:46 UTC
KDE 3.1.1a

The startkde script (/usr/kde/3.1/bin/startkde) is supposed to process "shutdown
scripts" after KDE exit, but improperly parses the list of 'exe' paths returned
from kde-config, so only the first path in the list is processed as expected
(usually ~/.kde/shutdown/).

startkde includes the following code:

# Run scripts found in $KDEDIRS/shutdown
for prefix in `kde-config --path exe| sed -e 's^bin/^shutdown/^g;s^:^ ^'`
    # run each script...

The second substitution expression passed to sed (s^:^ ^) doesn't include the /g
modifier, so it replaces only the first path separator with the input field
separator, yielding:

/home/user/.kde/shutdown/ /usr/kde/3.1/shutdown/:/usr/shutdown/

Adding the /g modifier so that the argument to sed becomes
's^bin/^shutdown/^g;s^:^ ^g' fixes the problem.

I checked to see if this issue was known upstream and found no
mention of it.

closing this as a LATER - it's been reported ot kde we just have
to get them to act on it.

Okay, has been fixed upstream in KDE for 3.2
