Hi cenwen, I will attempt to answer your questions. UNR is Ubuntu Netbook remix, it is 32bit (it does not come in the 64bit variety). It is basically Ubuntu desktop but tweaked for netbooks, mostly to do with the smaller display size. It is an official Ubuntu version and is available from the Ubuntu home page.

My test is using OpenShot 1.0.0 from the ppa.

Here, I start openshot from the terminal:-

$ openshot
Added /usr/share/openshot to system path
--------------------------------
   OpenShot (version 1.0.0)
--------------------------------
/usr/share/openshot/windows/SimpleGladeApp.py:340: GtkWarning: gtk_toolbar_set_icon_size: assertion `icon_size != GTK_ICON_SIZE_INVALID' failed
  return gtk.glade.XML(self.glade_path, root, domain)
A new frmMain has been created

Then run ps -x to show the PID:-

$ ps -x | grep "openshot"
Warning: bad ps syntax, perhaps a bogus '-'? See http://procps.sf.net/faq.html
 2820 pts/0 Sl+ 0:13 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/openshot
 2869 pts/1 S+ 0:00 grep --color=auto openshot

I then browse to my Videos folder and right click on a video file (TestNtsc.vob) and select "Open With > OpenShot Video Editor". Another OpenShot instance is started and the video file has been added to both OpenShot instances.

Here is the output of ps:-

$ ps -x | grep "openshot"
Warning: bad ps syntax, perhaps a bogus '-'? See http://procps.sf.net/faq.html
 2820 pts/0 Sl+ 0:14 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/openshot
 2902 ? Sl 0:13 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/openshot /home/daniel/Videos/TestNtsc.vob
 2924 pts/1 S+ 0:00 grep --color=auto openshot

I then kill the second instance as you requested:-

$ kill 2902

The second instance is closed as expected, the first instance continues to work fine. I am not sure what that test shows though.
