            Bug ID: 370528
           Summary: Autostart, stderr is closed if daemonized (conky)
           Product: ksmserver
           Version: 5.8.0
          Platform: Debian unstable
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: minor
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
          Assignee: l.lu...@kde.org
          Reporter: m...@debian.org

This seems to be related to the move of the autostart code from klauncher to
ksmserver.

Some programs expect a valid stderr (to send their errors to
~/.xsession-errors) even after daemonizing themselves.

Reports about this can be found:
 https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=217920
 https://bugs.debian.org/840478

Avoiding daemonization, or redirecting stderr solves the problem, but still
plasma 5.8 breaks backwards compatibility with these programs.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install conky
2. Add an autostart desktop file ~/.config/autostart/conky.desktop with:
 [Desktop Entry]
 Exec=/usr/bin/conky -d
 Icon=system-run
 Path=
 Terminal=false
 Type=application
3. Restart your session

Actual Results:  
conky is not running

Expected Results:  
conky is running

This worked fine with previous plasma versions.
