unquoted tildes in aliases trash terminal
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:45:28 EDT
Description of problem:
alias r ~user
where user is an non-system user (not necessarily existing one), will trash the
the terminal with random characters.
Sometimes (always, as long as described conditions are met).
Steps to Reproduce:
0. login at the console (sometimes you can get same effect even in X terminal
2. alias r ~username
Actual Results: 'L,]9[bhYq%'d:+~+2Ue(}xZ%6Ad4yHA(.A|e=45)'<G'`G_^==*eG;t%= @v
Expected Results: I should get a prompt.
this cannot be reproduced with tcsh-6.12
I think 6.12 is what everybody uses now so this report can be closed.
