I believe that what happens is that the selection stream gets an EOF and the REPL asks whether or not EOF is "transient" on the input stream (as it can be on a TTY but generally isn't on other kinds of communication devices.) When we used PTYs in Cocoa listeners, that used to work (i.e., not terminate the REPL.)

If the transient-eof idea makes sense, it should probably be a method on the stream (that fd-based streams implement by looking at the fd's file type.)

Easily reproduced.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

I believe that this is just a general case where unexpected EOF caused an IDE listener to exit and that it's fixed in the trunk as of r12125 (actually a bit earlier.)
