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 17:30:56 UTC
I discovered the bug while testing the erratum packages.

Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2002-07-30 01:55:00 UTC
Deferring for future investigation.

Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2002-11-03 06:48:31 UTC
Does this still occur in the latest stable release, or in our current
developmental release?

Comment 6 Ben Levenson 2002-11-23 00:41:16 UTC
I just verified that dump-0.4b28-4 fixes this problem.
