Description Andrew Hadinyoto 2002-12-24 11:36:44 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130 Description of problem: Bash's prompt overwrites output that's printed without newline. For example if you enter: echo -n "hello", no output will be seen. The output is printed but it was overwritten by bash's prompt. On long output, the bug is more obvious: echo -n "this is a very very long output without newline" The results show [uname@hostname tmp]$ ng output without newline The bug occured in Konsole, Gnome console and xterm. Also in runlevel 3 console under certain condition. Please see Additional Information section. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Use runlevel 5 either KDE or Gnome 1. echo -n "hello" 2. echo -n "hello just type a long text here longer than your prompt" 3. perl -e 'print "this will also caused a bug blah blah";' Actual Results: [uname@hostname tmp]$ [uname@hostname tmp]$g text here longer than your prompt [uname@hostname tmp]$ a bug blah blah Expected Results: hello[uname@hostname tmp]$ hello just type a long text here longer than your prompt[uname@hostname tmp]$ this will also caused a bug blah blah[uname@hostname tmp]$ Additional info: I noticed this problem only occurs only on subsequent instance of bash. It can be determined by $SHLVL variable. If it is "1", the bug does not happen. If it is greater than "1" which for Konsole, xterm, and Gnome Console by default are "3" when opened from X Windows. Remote login using SSH is fine, but when you "su -", the bug occured. Runlevel 3 console login is fine, but when you "su -" or call "bash" again, the bug occured. Again, it's fine as long as SHLVL is "1".
