Open a terminal and run
mkdir a1 mkdir a1/a2 mkdir a1/a2/a3 mkdir a1/a2/a3/a4 mkdir a1/a2/a3/a4/foo-bar cd a1/a2/a3/a4/foo-bar emasc a.cpp &
Note that is
emasc misspelled intentionally. For some reason, this will close the terminal with no response. This has been confirmed for me on two separate computers. It does not work on a separate shell screen
Control-Alt-F2 and only with the default terminal
Control-Shift-T. Is something going here that I don't know about?
This happens more often than I like, but this is the only sequence of commands that reproduces the crash(?) every time.
EDIT: A far more interesting development. Navigating to the directory and running bash
cd ~/a1/a2/a3/a4/foo-bar bash
With the error:
shell-init: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent directories: No such file or directory sh: 0: getcwd() failed: No such file or directory
Again, this only happens on Gnome terminal as far as I can tell.
EDIT2: After confirmation in the comments, I submitted a bug report
