Upstream issue: https://github.com/pexpect/pexpect/issues/669

(I could not add the link to the Bugzilla field, because there is some error in Jira synchronization.)

Comment 2 Victor Stinner 2021-01-19 11:38:06 UTC
FYI Python had a similar issue with readline which injected bytes like ".[?1034h": https://bugs.python.org/issue19884. The workaround was to set TERM=xterm-256color environment variable.

Comment 3 Dan Radez 2021-01-19 14:39:29 UTC
I tried running the checks after updating the test command to "TERM=xterm-256color TRAVIS=true py.test-3 --verbose"
Saw the env value set in the checks when I ran mock to build the package.

Same failure.

Thx for the suggestion Victor.

Comment 4 Dan Radez 2021-01-19 16:06:42 UTC
I added the temporary workaround:
echo "set enable-bracketed-paste off" > .inputrc
export INPUTRC=$PWD/.inputrc

and pushed it up so the tests would be passing again.

The build failed: https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=60043613
I tried to reproduce the failure in a scratch build and it succeeded: https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=60044790

The build failure was not the bracketed paste error at first glance.
I'll poke a bit more and see what I can figure out.
