Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 128438
vim spills "unknown" escape sequences
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:46 EST
Description of problem:
With recent versions of vim opening a file, say 'vi /etc/fstab',
in a gnome-terminal or from a remote connection dumps
"^[34m~" right below end of text and no text colouring occures.
This is not the case on a text console.
The problem is also absent with vim-6.2.457-1 from FC2;
that means that neither gnome-terminal nor remotes show
any extra "enhancements". Also using explicitely /bin/vi
from 'vim-minimal' prevents garbage from showing up for
a price of loosing various features of vim.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
with any file
already fixed in vim-6.3.014-1 (bug 128344)
