".q[a-z]* " unrecognized command close the root

Hi Guys !
The documentation specifies only .quit or .q command shutdown the root framework. But any letter sequence followed by .q [regex -> .q [a-z]* ] like .qqq, .qaazx closes the root framework. I think probably it is a potential issue, the interactive prompt should throw error (unrecognized command). If I’m wrong please correct me !
system : ubuntu 16.04
version : ROOT 6.12/07

The following commands are all recognized (see https://root.cern.ch/interactive-root-sessions):


That is a subset of the commands you suggest are invalid.

Oh Thanks ! But there are still many combinations that shuts down ROOT runtime. Whether this will get corrected in meantime ?
