You're right - it is working! Hurrah!
It appears that the real change is just that '-ui' no longer sets the
environment to "command line".
Unfortunately my test stacks all had the simple code (similar to your one) in
openstack but wrapped in a test for the environment = "command line". It now
returns "standalone application", regardless of the -ui flag; so my test
stacks weren't doing the stuff they were supposed to, my real stack was
attempting to do stuff it shouldn't, and neither was quitting.
So that's much better. I've snagged this at RQCC (#9734). In the meantime,
is anyone aware of a built-in method, other than "the environment" to detect
running headless? (Obviously if not I can work around it by adding some extra
command-line parameters of my own, but that only works if I remember to...).
Many thanks for taking the time to set me straight...
