gnome-terminal displays no prompt after reset and clear
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:39 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
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open gnome-terminal and enter several lines
2. Select "Terminal -> Reset and Clear" from menubar
no prompt is displayed immediately after "Reset and Clear"
prompt should be displayed for the first entered command
This behavior has been present here for a while so is not specific to
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).
Did this ever get filed upstream?
It probably should be filed upstream, even if it isn't yet. I can't
find it upstream, although the behavior is still there.
