Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 55386
exiting emacs SOMETIMES leaves terminal settings in bad state
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:37:53 EDT
Description of Problem:
After SOME emacs sessions are exited, the terminal may be in a bad state.
While the program functions normally, with no ill effects, after leaving
the program, the terminal may have poor settings for ^D, ^C, ^H, ^J and may
no longer echo command line entry to the screen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rlogin to system. The problem happens more often with rlogin, but
terminal problems can occur with SSH.
2. run emacs. Perform operations that mofidy large portions of the screen
- rebuild an RPM, for instance, or seomthing else that clears the screen.
3. Exit emacs. Terminal is now messed up.
Misbehaving terminal, as described.
Terminal settings similar to that of a fresh login
This may be a terminal problem and not a setup problem.
I use emacs extensively, and have never seen that... probably a terminal
problem. Reopen if you can provide a reprodusible testcase on a known-good
terminal (i.e. windows telnet doesn't count ;).
Hmm. Can windows DO rlogin? 8-)
Same as Teg. I am addicted to emacs and I cannot reproduce this bug on my
rawhide linux box. But I have already seen this kind of bug in the past, caused
by a broken /bin/login.
I'll see if I can cook up a procedure guaranteed to set it off then.
