/etc/bashrc contains a section that sets the "erase" setting based on the
terminfo entry for the terminal. The problem is that this overrides "stty
erase" settings from other sources (such as a remote connection via ssh, where
OpenSSH properly carries forward the "erase" setting). There is currently no
way for a normal user to fix this; root must override it by editing /etc/bashrc.
Would it be possible to at least make this section dependent on an environment
variable or something, so those of us that don't want it can avoid it (without
having to edit /etc/bashrc on every install)?
This is surely a duplicate of bug #91357.
Thanks. I did look for an existing bug (honest!) but I didn't see it.
Just checked the FC dev setup-2.5.30 and see the change has been made.
