QT5.2.1 programs do not exit intermittently when using linux killall with only the program name specified

  • When trying to use the Linux killall command to kill a QT 5.2.1 built application the application does not always get killed. If we resort to using a killall -9 it seems to kill the applications OK. This is new in this release of QT as the killall command with no arguments used to work in previous releases. Is this change something that was done intentionally or is there something that we need to add to our QT built apps now so that the killall will function as it did before and end all the QT apps that we specify on the command line?

    Not a major issue we would just like some clarification on the change before we proceed further in our development.

    Thank you....
