rdesktop doesn't respond to hey quit

I had scripted, using hey, rdesktop to open at fullscreen geometry, then align itself with the edges of the screen so that I could actually see everything. It had been working for months.

I'm not sure when it broke exactly, because I didn't upgrade for a while until just now, but as of hrev46102, hey just hangs if I try to 'hey rdesktop' anything:

/> hey rdesktop get Flags of Window 0

...sits there for minutes. Same thing for any other app (StyledEdit, Terminal, WebPositive, e.g.) works instantly and gives a valid message.

Even 'hey rdesktop quit' doesn't affect it, rdesktop keeps on trucking while Terminal blinks forever until Ctrl+C.

This is true for 1.5.0 gcc2 and 1.7.0post from

Replying to Kev:

Still happens on hrev46198 gcc2.

The interesting question would be from which revision it doesn't work anymore. Trying older nightlies and bisecting will help to do that.

Summary: rdesktop no longer responds to heyrdesktop doesn't respond to hey quit

Sorry, I was mistaken. (I lost my HD contents installing CentOS a few months ago, which included my rdesktop launcher script, so I was going on my faulty memory. I had been playing with 'hey' a bunch around the time I set up rdesktop, so I thought I had used it for that.) I tried it on Alpha 4 and was surprised that it also didn't work there, since I had been using it in full screen a long time since Alpha 4. So it didn't break after all, it was always broken wrt 'hey' functionality. (Although maybe it's a bug that you can't send 'quit'?)

Turns out the way I was doing it was with a '-f' command line option, which is not presented to you if you run rdesktop without any parameters. My bad.

This problem seems to be specific to rdesktop, and not an Haiku bug.
