how to repeat:

in a bash shell start playing a movie (mplayer video.avi)

use Ctrl-Z to pause it and get a bash shell prompt(movie pauses)

use bash cmd bg to put in background( movie starts playing again)

now advance movie to the end or just let it finish playing

now when you look at nplayer with 'ps ax' parent job is status 'T' and shild
process has ended(must now kill with -9)

sending the parent -sigcont will not cause the process to finish

Using debian testing and mplayer testing

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

AFAIK this is how it should behave (actually it is probable that you will run
into more problems when backgrounding MPlayer).
You can use -noconsolecontrols to make it behave differently (not read from
stdin that is), but you can't control it from the terminal then.
Putting it in the foreground again will also cause it to finish.
