Description Andrew Farris 2004-03-31 07:04:39 EST
Description of problem:
gnome-terminal does not re'prompt after the menu command "Terminal ->
Reset and Clear".  It is necessary to enter a blank line (which is a
valid input line.. just lacks prompt) before the prompt is correctly
displayed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-terminal-2.5.90-1.1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open gnome-terminal and enter several lines
2. Select "Terminal -> Reset and Clear" from menubar

Actual results:
no prompt is displayed immediately after "Reset and Clear"

Expected results:
prompt should be displayed for the first entered command

This behavior has been present here for a while so is not specific to
this package.

Behavior still exists in 2.7.3-1 and I see no mention of this upstream, will
move the bug there.

I believe what the terminal is doing may be a literal 'reset, and then clear'
which removes all output of the prompt.  The positioning of the cursor indicates
a prompt was sent (I use a multiline prompt).

Hi Andrew,

Did this ever get filed upstream?
Comment 3 John Thacker 2006-05-04 21:17:14 EDT
It probably should be filed upstream, even if it isn't yet.  I can't
find it upstream, although the behavior is still there.
