Description of problem:
Red Hat has:
 $ alias ls
 alias ls='ls --color=tty'

When I run ls on a directory containing a large number of files, and
press Ctrl+C, ls exits, but does not reset the colour for the terminal.

For example, if ls is half way through printing a green executable
file, and I kill ls, everything I type afterwards is now in green.

How reproducible:

Should ls do this, or is this more of a bash "feature"?
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2004-04-29 12:05:25 EDT
This is an ls bug, yes.  There have been some changes upstream which
should fix this, but I doubt they will get into Fedora Core 2 before
release at this point.  Deferring until the next round.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2004-11-02 12:37:10 EST
I think this is fixed now (5.2.1-31) -- at least, I can't reproduce
it.  Please re-open if you still see this problem.  Thanks.
