when I type this command open -a Terminal . while I am on the /tmp folder, a terminal appears and exits immediately. Before the new terminal gets disappeared, I see this message:

Last login: Wed Aug  2 15:15:32 on ttys006
/tmp ; exit;

It happens only when I am on /tmp, the open -a Terminal . command works for any other location.

Any idea, what's going on? My machine is like this (mac osx sierra):

    For what reason are you doing this? – IconDaemon Aug 2 '17 at 23:56
