Description of problem:
I don't know if this bug's "component" was correctly chosen. This problem
occurs in both the Gnome terminal and on the character console, so I chose a
common denominator - bash:
When I type two non-English letters, such as 2 o-umlauts, then backspace twice,
the first of the two letters still remains.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to a Gnome terminal or log into a character console.
2. echo "<o-umlaut><u-umlaut><Backspace><Backspace>aa"
Actual Results: <o-umlaut>aa
Expected Results: aa
I installed Limbo with a English-US and Estonian languages, English-US is the
default. An Estonian keyboard is also installed.
That's an bash/readline issue. Already fixed in the latest packages
Yep. I can confirm that this works correctly with bash-2.05a-16 recently
installed from the Red Hat Network.
