Description Kjetil T. Homme 2005-05-23 06:24:48 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.7.8-1.3.1

Description of problem:
this is a regression.  in RHEL 3, /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults/XTerm contains this comment:

! Bug fix for bugzilla bug #49315
*VT100*eightBitInput: false

this has been removed in RHEL 4.  unfortunately, the named bug is inaccessible to non-employees.  anyway, without this fix, meta keys (M-b and M-f to move a word backward and forward, for instance) doesn't work in Bash or other readline enhanced applications, which obviously is quite irritating.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xterm-192-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start XTerm with bash
2. type "foo"
3. type Meta-b
  

Actual Results:  I get the character LATIN CAPITAL LETTER A WITH CIRCUMFLEX (bugzilla couldn't handle the raw character :-)

Expected Results:  the cursor should move to the beginning of the word "foo"
