Is this a bug I should report or have I just broken my install?
Dom0 appears to retain some state memory after shutting down, even when battery is removed and power button pressed a few times to exhaust all power and to clear ram.
The first iteration was two unsolicited instances of the qube manager window appearing together on every boot.
The first instance has cleared after a few days of unrelated system testing, and was immediately replaced with a new and equally unsolicited startup window, this time Dom0 terminal. This was after a use of Dom0 terminal followed by a shutdown.
I’ve not actually been entering any commands in Dom0 beyond lsblk and have barely changed the system from stock: one template clone with some snapd.
How could this be happening? Is it a broken install? A qubes feature? Does the fact that i’ve been removing batteries and hard-drive (in that order) for testing and formatting for reinstall possibly suggest i’ve damaged the SSD or forced it to write some parts of itself twice? Even if that’s an explanation, I have not made a startup rule on either machine, so how has the system reached this output?
