For what it's worth, I have found that shells typically do not terminate
issued a TERM signal; they require a HUP.

Xterm, however, usually goes kerpoof with just about any signal one might
throw it with the intent of doing damage (KILL, HUP, TERM, INT, QUIT,
XCPU, XFSZ, ABRT, EMT, BUS, FPE, SEGV (sh used to ignore this one)
get the idea).

Solaris 2 is not an upgrade from Solaris 1.  They just want you to THINK it is.
