I know I'm supposed to be able to type
open -a Terminal . to get a new Terminal window running in the current directory. But it doesn't seem to work for me; I get this:
Last login: Wed Aug 27 06:52:21 on ttys001 jason-cpu1:~ jason$ /Users/jason ; exit; -bash: /Users/jason: is a directory logout
It looks like the Terminal program wants to run a command and then exit. How can I tell it not to do this?
On the other hand, if I use an explicit path to the Terminal app, it works fine:
open -n /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app
Why the difference in behavior?
