Re: logout delay

Greg, you're right!

It seems to be a getty issue not shell itself. As I mentioned before
(but chosen incorrect responder) I type 'exit', wait ~1 second then
login prompt appears. And I tried many shells with the same result.
Actually, I stopped worried about this because it happens only on
getty logout. I log in once a day then dive into X and don't see getty
until I turn computer on the next day :) I just wonder if somebody
knows what the issue is.
