Mulitple Workflow shortcut requests under Mavericks stack up, waiting for close

Recommended Posts

I have multiple Workflow scripts that I call with Keywords; these each call a shell script that performs an xterm open command on a given machine/location.  These worked fine every time I called them under Mountain Lion, but under Mavericks they "stack up", allowing only a single one to run at a time.  As soon as I close the first one for a given destination machine (i.e., a single shortcut script), the next one opens.  I cannot have two windows open on the same machine as I could before updating to Mavericks.

 

Running Alfred v2.1 (218), downloaded today (10/28), still happens.  The odd thing is that different shortcuts will open windows to the different destination machines; only executing the same shortcut causes them to "stack" for that machine.

 

Example workflow:

 

"xl" keyword -> "/bin/bash Run Script"; the Script contents are:

cd ~

/usr/X11R6/bin/xterm -ls -geometry 120x60

 

I tried adding a "&" at the end of the xterm line, but that did not help.  I also tried using /bin/zsh, but same thing happens.

 

Any ideas?

 

If there is a better way to do this, I'm all ears, but this worked fine in v2 before my Mavericks installation.

 

Thanks,

Hi Rich, As this is an issue with Mavericks and workflows, rather than an Alfred bug, I've moved this to the Workflows Help & questions so that other workflow developers can help you out. :)
