User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040510

Description of problem:
The reset command previously would clear the console and write a new
prompt. In Fedora Core 2, the console is not cleared; the cursor just
creates a new prompt on the top line. Then, whatever was on the screen
is overwritten as you run commands.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run commands that cause the screen to contain text.
2. Type 'reset' and hit enter.

Actual Results:  The console has a new prompt at the top while leaving
the rest of the text on the screen.

Expected Results:  The console is cleared and a new prompt is written
to the screen.

I have experienced the same bug on both AMD64 & x86 platforms. 
ADditionally, the terminal's buffer is not cleared, either.

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
