Description bjn 1999-10-19 14:54:40 EDT
It appears that stty flush and kill both get set to ^U
somewhere -- stty flush should be ^O.  This gets passed
along when you telnet/rlogin to other hosts, and then ^U
won't function as the line kill character.

I can't reproduce this here:
notting@bobby:~ ]$ stty -a
speed 9600 baud; rows 24; columns 80; line = 0;
intr = ^C; quit = ^\; erase = ^?; kill = ^U; eof = ^D; eol = <undef>;
eol2 = <undef>; start = ^Q; stop = ^S; susp = ^Z; rprnt = ^R; werase =
lnext = ^V; flush = ^O; min = 1; time = 0;

Do you have anything odd in your profile settings?
Comment 2 bjn 1999-10-19 17:02:59 EDT
Sorry, I should have said:  this is when running gnome-terminal in an
X session (GNOME and Enlightenment).  I notice that it doesn't happen
from the text consoles (/dev/tty0 etc.).

Comment 3 Owen Taylor 1999-12-01 10:49:59 EST
Tthis is fixed as of gnome-libs-1.0.54. There will be a set of update RPMs
released including that version released shortly.
