Don't attempt to show the prefs on relaunch if the window isn't open when quitting, fixes #526 #962

Just a simple check to see if the Prefs window is visible before attempting to setenv

An annoying problem. So glad to see it fixed. Even though I see it all the time, I’m having trouble reproducing it at will. I can’t tell much of a difference in behavior between this and master.

This only applies to a relaunch, right? If you launch fresh, it’s a different environment?

In either branch, it seems I have to restart a couple of times with the prefs open to make the window appear on start up, but then once it does, it comes up on every restart (even if I close it first). I don’t see anywhere that the QSVisiblePrefPane environment variable gets cleared. Seems like it should after it’s been read in QSController so it doesn’t influence the next relaunch. Right?

The method described in #526 by the user reproduced the problem reliably for me.

I don't really understand environments. I was thinking it may be better to store and read a BOOL from the prefs (user defaults)

OK, I’ve figured it out. I was right that the environment needs to be cleared up at some point.

You’ve fixed part of the bug by making sure the window won’t be visible if it wasn’t visible on shutdown. But for the case where it was visible on shut down, and it (correctly) shows on relaunch, you can’t ever get rid of it. If you close the window and relaunch (even several times), it always comes back.

Adding this on line 77-78 seems to fix it.

Me either. I’ve never seen it used in C before, but I don’t think it’s any different from the variables in your shell. The environment does seem to persist during relaunches, but not on a fresh launch, which is why we need to use unsetenv(). You could get more complicated, I guess, by checking the current state with getenv() and deciding what to do. But I think my “dumb” fix works.
