Description Michael Schwendt 2002-08-16 13:14:26 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020804

Description of problem:
[ This is another one from the set of locale-problems with non-ASCII characters.]

With "bash" on virtual console (CTRL+)ALT+F1, for each non-ASCII special
character (e.g. Euro-symbol, cent-symbol, characters from west european
languages) I type in, backspace can delete _two_ characters.

$ cat /etc/sysconfig/i18n 

$ export | grep LAN
declare -x LANG="en_GB.UTF-8"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
bash-2.05b-3, glibc-2.2.90-23
(rest from upgraded Limbo beta2)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. (CTRL)+ALT+F1
2. log in
3. AltGr+E AltGr+E AltGr+E AltGr+E AltGr+E AltGr+E AltGr+E
[or enter other non-ASCII characters here]
4. Backspace Backspace Backspace  Backspace  Backspace  Backspace

Actual Results:  Backspace key deletes two characters each time it is pressed
and even deletes past the shell-prompt.

Expected Results:  Backspace key should delete only one character each time it
is pressed.
