Initial Comment:
I am not sure that this bug is related specificly to debian gnu/hurd but i have 
not experienced in using the Linux kernel so i though i would report it just in 

i have just installed Debian gnu/hurd on a physical machine and logged in as 
the root user.
i then made a perl file with nano and saved it.
i then exited nano ran the script then opened up nano again and received a 
message informing me that:
File is being edited (by root with nano 2.7.4 PID 699): continue?

i then ran ps to check what was running and i had 2 nano's running
i then repeated the process above and found that about half the time i got the 
same result and i ended up with 4 nano's running.

but after looking at ps in more detail i saw that i also had 3 bashes and one 
sh still running (these where commands i have typed before)

i am not sure if its normal for bash or sh to keep running in the background 
after launching a new bash session but i seems to be unusual that nano would 
continue running as well despite me exiting the application with Ctrl-X.

I am not a very skilled gnu/Linux user to i could just be missing something 
here but i though i might as well report this just in case.

in case i visit this site infrequently and you want more information from me my 
email is:
