Xpra: Ticket #337: 0.9.2: stop do not terminate X server

In 9.0.2 xpra stop :13 leaves corresponding X server running. Process "/usr/bin/Xorg-for-Xpra-:13" is still active and I can't "xpra start :13" on that display again without "--use-display".

Earlier versions were terminating associated X server on xpra stop.

Hmmm, I cannot reproduce with r3391 or with 0.9.x, here is the server log when I issue xpra stop (with or without a client connected makes no difference):

Python/GObject Linux client version 0.10.0 connected from 'dhcppc17'
windows/pixels forwarding is disabled for this client
max client resolution is 0x0 (from []), current server resolution is 4800x1200

Disconnecting existing client Protocol(SocketConnection(/home/antoine/.xpra/dhcppc17-10)), reason is: shutting down

Thanks for checking...

Strangely enough I can't reproduce this issue again after terminating "Xorg-for-Xpra-:13" that was left after "xpra stop" when I logged this ticket...

"Xorg-for-Xpra-:13" was started when I was testing patch for #335. I'm not sure how it's all happened but apparently somehow it failed to terminate on "xpra stop"....

Perhaps we can close this issue for now until there will be reliable information how to reproduce...

OK, feel free to re-open, preferably if you have reproducible steps.
