Sorry for jumping in, but could You, please, give an example (use
case) why it makes sense to NOT close any open gis.m sessions on
init.sh exit? Any action issued by gis.m will fail as it's not an
standalone application. Why leave user with open and non-functioning
application windows? Or is this that "You get what You deserve"
attitude to endusers?
