Description Robin Green 2004-06-10 11:21:07 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040608 Description of problem: I noticed this (presumably quite rare and subtle) bug when doing pstree -lpn|less in the terminal emulator "screen", running in gnome-terminal. Basically sometimes when you output a particular character sequence gnome-terminal spuriously adds an indent. I have verified that it's not a screen bug by stracing screen using strace -s 65536 -o screen.strace -e trace=write -p $PID_OF_ACTIVE_SCREEN and the output is identical when the bug occurs and when the bug does not occur (remember, it's pretty random). So it can't possibly be a screen bug. Note that this seems to be a timing-influenced bug (thread bug perhaps?) so it might not occur on a faster machine. My machine is an Athlon XP 1800. (Indeed the only reason why screen triggers this might be that screen slows the catting down a little.) Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnome-terminal-2.6.0-2 How reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Download attached test file 2. Start gnome-terminal 3. Start screen 4. Type "cat bug" 5. As the bug is intermittent, you may need to try again a few times before you see it. Actual Results: The xinetd line is indented, like this: ├─sshd(2154) ├ ├─xinetd(2169)───fam(4803) ├─ntpd(2184) Expected Results: ├─sshd(2154) ├─xinetd(2169)───fam(4803) ├─ntpd(2184) Additional info: (At first I thought that someone had hacked my box and was (bizarrely) using my machine as an xinetd server. Look at the bogus output above - you can see why I was worried!)

Oops, looks like bugzilla has foobared my actual and expected results. I'll attach a screenshot. The first cat (partially offscreen) is buggy, the second cat has worked.

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.
