Description Need Real Name 2006-01-15 08:13:27 EST
(Ack. I broke bugzilla again. Will file a bug..)

If I sftp to a machine, and use
 mkdir Äpache
then realise my mistake, press backspace six times, so that it reads:
 mkdir Apache
then press enter. a directory called "Apache" is not created.

$ ls -tr1|tail -1|cat -v

$ echo $LANG
Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2006-01-16 05:26:45 EST
I'm sorry but I cannot reproduce your problem at all. Backspace works normally
here. What are the $LANG settings on both client and server machine? What
terminal application do you use?

This is most probably some misconfiguration on your setup or there is bug in the
terminal application used.
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2006-01-16 06:52:49 EST
Both client and server are de_AT.UTF-8.
I am using gnome-terminal.
Comment 3 Tomas Mraz 2006-01-16 07:45:54 EST
Reproduceable in gnome-terminal only (not xterm or konsole) -> reassign.
Comment 4 Need Real Name 2006-03-15 05:42:49 EST
Still broken.
Comment 5 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-03-15 12:18:38 EST
Is this broken in FC4 only, or rawhide too?  I have a really vague memory of a
bug like this getting fixed some time ago.

If it's already fixed in rawhide, maybe we can do an fc4 update.
Comment 6 Need Real Name 2006-03-15 13:18:09 EST
Ugh. It's still broken in Rawhide too. Here are some umlauts to test! öäü
Comment 7 Matthias Clasen 2006-08-02 13:43:28 EDT
Fix is in upstream cvs, we should make sure it gets into FC6
Comment 8 Matthias Clasen 2006-08-02 13:47:49 EDT
Fixed in 0.13.5-1.fc6
