Follow-up Comment #10, bug #53034 (project octave):

I'm sorry but I think your reading of the GLib code is incorrect. If you read
the GLib docs or actually try it yourself, you will see that the child process
has stdin opened to read from /dev/null by default. There are options to have
the child inherit the parent's stdin file descriptor or to pass one end of a
newly created fifo, which the parent can then close if they want to. But all
uses of close_and_invalidate having to do with stdin in GLib are simply
internal cleanup.

But this is starting to digress.

To stay on topic, it would help us fix this issue if someone could provide a
working patch that has actually been tested in a real windowing environment
and that demonstrates a concrete improvement over the status quo.
