that's impossible to do... if you would attempt to do this you would be
able to restore a terminal with for instance a rogue process attached to
it or something garbage. Best not to step in this direction at all.

However, if supported, the terminal should be restored.

AFAIK terminals which are started with directly a command in it (like from
a launcher that launches lynx in a terminal) already are restored nicely
(at least, this was the case before in 4.1-cvs... I had several `ssh
loghost tail -f /var/log/messages` running around that restored nicely on
