Why does xterm always echo the "exit" command before shutting down?
I grepped the source code to see if there was an actual instruction to print "exit" as a goodbye message but there isn't. So why does this happen and what is its purpose?

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
Sorry Hazel, but my system shuts down the xterms so fast that if they are echoing the string, I can't see it. And yes, I did try with a real xterm, and not a KDE or Gnome console/terminal window.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
