This bug is TN2083 doesn’t document all known Session types. It was filed on 2008-01-19 at 16:44 PST.


Summary:

TN2083 lists only four of the five session types that the launchctl(1) manpage lists.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Load up manpage for launchctl.
  2. Load up the launchd Agent section of the technote.

Expected Results:

launchctl(1) lists the known session types as “Aqua, LoginWindow, Background, StandardIO and System.” The table of session types defines Aqua, StandardIO, Background, LoginWindow, and System.

Actual Results:

launchctl(1) lists the known session types as “Aqua, LoginWindow, Background, StandardIO and System.” The table of session types defines Aqua, StandardIO, Background, and LoginWindow.

System is left out.

Regression:

Tiger had a different set of session types entirely, and its manpage for launchctl did not name them (because launchctl did not have any options that accepted session types). TN2083 also does not list Tiger’s session types.
