Description Atuya Okudaira 2003-03-13 10:33:34 UTC
Description of problem:
bash's PS1 overwrites the output-line without newline
in some environment.

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

How reproducible:
For the RH8.0 (i386) installed with the basic language: japanese 
and with all languages,
Login X window system : Gnome or ...;
Open terminal: kterm, xterm or gnome-terminal;
type command: echo -n hello
(or helloworld.c with printf("hello"); /* without \n */)
then the output line is overwritten by PS1 of bash.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.login Gnome (lang: japanese or american english)
2.start xterm
3.type echo -n hello
Actual results:
[okudaira@satyros okudaira]$ echo -n hello

Expected results:
[okudaira@satyros okudaira]$ echo -n hello
hello[okudaira@satyros okudaira]$

Additional info:
[okudaira@satyros okudaira]$ echo -n hello | more
[okudaira@satyros okudaira]$

'su -' or 'ssh localhost' does not reproduce the results.
bash-2.05a does not reproduce the results.
