Description of problem:
When running zsh, my prompt is set to '%B[hostname]%b '.  This normally causes
the prompt to be in bold text.  With gnome-terminal, it does not do so.  There
is no difference whether the setting box is checked or unchecked.  In xterm, the
prompt is displayed in bold text.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run zsh
2. set prompt='%B[xyz]%b '
3. Notice the new prompt is not in bold text

Actual Results:  The new prompt is displayed in plain text.

Expected Results:  The new prompt is displayed in bold text.

This is fixed in newer vte. (not yet in rawhide I don't think)
Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2003-01-13 23:02:06 EST
Closing, fixed in Raw Hide (vte-0.9.2-1 and later).
