Python interpreter keeps restarting

Whenever I try to exit the python interpreter by doing cntrl+d or exit(), it then persistently restarts the python interpreter. I want to write a command in my console so I need to exit the interpreter. I tried opening new repl with the basic example of hello-world and I have the same issue. Every time I exit() or do cntrl+d it restarts the python interpreter and I just want it to end. Anyone able to help?

**Expected vs Current Behavior:**the python interpreter should not restart on its own

Replit Profile:

Try forking this repl and see if the forked version works. Or, enter kill 1 into the Shell.

Note that trying kill 1 before forking is always better.

Hey @JonathanLederer!

Can you please send me the link to the Repl that you’re seeing issues on?

Hi, this is intended behavior. Please make sure you are in the shell tab, not the console tab.
