Description Björn Gerhart 2003-01-10 13:09:57 UTC
Description of problem:
When I type in some chars and delete them
with backspace everything is fine. The same done with german
umlauts (e.g. üöä) causes that backspace can delete chars behind
the leftmost: the promt can be deleted also. So for every umlaut
TWO chars can be deleted.

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

How reproducible:
* German-latin1 keyboard is loaded
* bash is the login shell
* error happens on text console or ssh connection

Steps to Reproduce:
1) go to a text console (_no_ console within X!)
2) enter "loadkeys de-latin1-nodeadkeys"
3) type _one_ German umlaut (ä, ö, ü or Ã)
4) press <backspace> two times
Actual results:
The cursor enters a position which is not allowed. Its position is within the

Expected results:
After the second press of <backspace> the cursor must not go further to the left.

Additional info:
* When entering an umlaut-key on the user login, the character is not shown
correctly; two special characters are shown instead of one umlaut
