System: I have XUbuntu 12.04 64bit and run Terminal 0.4.8 (Xfce Terminal Emulator).
Problem: My Terminal always stops to accept any input after I close a program window started from the Terminal.
Details: For example, I start leafpad, (or geany, tkdiff etc) from the terminal. I close the window after finishing my job by either clicking on the close button or using ctrl-w. Then when I go back to the terminal, it does not accept any input any more.
Workaround: When this happens, I have to click on any other window (giving it the focus) and go back to Terminal again. Usually this causes the Terminal to starts to accept input again. So I always have to do a alt-tab, shift-alt-tab after I close a program started from Terminal. This is very annoying.
Googled and did not find answer.
