Well the short answer seems to be that one of the original author of
idlefork just want it that way. He/She didn't like the previous behaviour.
By the way, one of the original author of Idle apparently couldn't get
used to this new behaviour and, if my memory and my ears didn't betrayed
me, I recall to have listened his voice from the outfar imploring:
"please, gimme my shell baaack!" but I can be wrong...

The thing is that there are different users. I know for sure that this
is being considering and this problem will be addressed if it's not
already done, at least in idlefork's CVS.
