I'd suspect libreadline myself ... shooting from the hip...

This version of dump is ancient though.  Does it do this in the latest
Comment 3 Ben Levenson 2002-03-11 12:30:56 EST
I discovered the bug while testing the erratum packages.
Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2002-07-29 21:55:00 EDT
Deferring for future investigation.
Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2002-11-03 01:48:31 EST
Does this still occur in the latest stable release, or in our current
developmental release?
Comment 6 Ben Levenson 2002-11-22 19:41:16 EST
I just verified that dump-0.4b28-4 fixes this problem.
