Description sinsalaco 1998-12-25 21:28:30 UTC
When you put in the modem prefix-string something like:
"ATX3DT" it splits in ATX and 3DT goes to the phone number
string next time that you start linuxconf!
------at the next start--------

This has been verified to be a bug in linuxconf. I was able to
replicate the problem in the textmode as well as the graphical
versions. It does not harm the chat-pppx file. It justs displays the
lines incorrectly in the interface.

This has been assigned to a developer.

Jacques added to CC line so that he can examine the bug.  It is
only cosmetic, and I can't think of a heuristic that would both
fix this and not break the display of partially alphabetic phone
numbers for those modems (I don't know what percentage they are)
that support alphabetic phone numbers.

Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-04-09 21:15:59 UTC
I'm not sure why I cared about alphabetic phone numbers.  As it
is a purely cosmetic issue anyway, I have optimized this for the
common case.

Fixed in linuxconf-1.14r4-3
