Works for me currently (dist-6.2 tree as of 2000/02/09 12:15 GMT).

Comment 2 Steve Wills 2000-02-09 19:05:59 UTC
What package version are you refering to? I'm using vim-*-5.6-5 from the beta.

I'm using ncurses 5.0-9, but I can't find the termcap-10.2.7-5. The latest I can
find is termcap-10.2.7-4. Where is the newer version? Also, have you tried this
in a gnome-terminal? Thats where I'm seeing the problem.

Sure - I've actually fixed it yesterday (new gnome-libs, the problem was in the
zvt widget, not gnome-terminal itself).
