Description of problem:
When I try to get a long file name. Once it is completed the ncftp program
doesn't clear the line properly when scrolling the filename over.
ncftp ...pdates/7.3/en/os/SRPMS > ls ker*
ncftp ...pdates/7.3/en/os/SRPMS > $c.rpm nel-2.4.18-18
What is wrong in this picture is the last line. When I gave it enough to
complete kernel-2.4.18-18.7.x.src.rpm it wrote that and scrolled the line over
so that only the "c.rpm" is visible. That is fine. However, it forgot to erase
the rest of the filename from the terminal screen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. connect to some ftp server with deep paths and long filenames e.g. ftp.redhat.com
2. go down a deep path e.g. the updates directory for a particular release of a
3. tab complete a file
Actual Results: ncftp ...pdates/7.3/en/os/SRPMS > $c.rpm nel-2.4.18-18
Expected Results: ncftp ...pdates/7.3/en/os/SRPMS > $c.rpm
Nevermind. I tested it with the 7.3 version of ncftp and it seems to work fine.
