Note, this does NOT happen when in GNU Screen.
Basically I have witnessed some weird cursor functionality with latest terminology. Easiest way to reproduce is to cat the typescript file I have attached () and compare with xterm.
I'd expect for this line to be visible
a/b -some text code bugtesting
What happens instead:
estingotesting tode bugtesting
You can also reproduce this bug by:
- Enable text highlighting for python in nano
- Type some text that highlights
- Go to line beginning with home key or similar
- Begin typing in the middle of a highlighted word and you should see cursor going haywire
