Description Dag Wieers 2005-03-12 01:04:16 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)
Gecko/20041020 Galeon/1.3.19

Description of problem:
The following should work:

    [dag@emyn dag]$ echo -e "\033[sone\033[utwo\033[uthree"

In gnome-terminal, you get this:

    [dag@emyn dag]$ echo -e "\033[sone\033[utwo\033[uthree"

Regardless of what TERM is used. (gnome, xterm, rxvt, ansi)

    \033[s     -> save cursor position
    \033[u     -> restore cursor position

Other terminal emulation programs, like xterm, rxvt,
multi-gnome-terminal do it correctly. I hit this problem when using dstat.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. echo -e "\033[sone\033[utwo\033[uthree"

Actual Results:  [sone[utwo[uthree

Expected Results:  three

Fedora Core 3 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 FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
