Description len 1999-10-18 19:37:14 EDT
When I use vi (minimal version or vim), after quitting,
there is an extraneous 'c' before the prompt in the
terminal window.  This happens if I just quit without
having entered any text.   If I start vi and then use
Ctrl-z and kill the job, there is no 'c'.

FWIW I can't reproduce this problem on sparc or i386.

What type of terminal window?
What termcap entry are you using?
How are you quitting /bin/vi?
What shell? Are you overriding the prompt in any unusal way?

I see the same bug Terminal window -- gnome-terminal only -- does not
happen with xterm
quit /bin/vi with :wq or :q
prompt overriding with PS1="bash@\h\\$ "
