Please tell us what terminal emulator you use.
Comment 5 Nikos Chantziaras 2018-04-11 17:43:31 UTC
(In reply to Jeroen Roovers from comment #4)
> Please tell us what terminal emulator you use.

Konsole 17.12.3.
Comment 6 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2018-04-14 11:19:33 UTC
I cannot reproduce, at least with gnome-terminal and from console

Anyway, maybe you can try with 1.1.6 newer version

Same here. It only happens in Konsole.

> Anyway, maybe you can try with 1.1.6 newer version

Same issue.
Comment 8 Nikos Chantziaras 2018-05-12 13:24:10 UTC
This appears to have been fixed in konsole 18.04.0 (or perhaps 18.04.1, not sure.)

Comment 9 Nikos Chantziaras 2018-05-12 13:25:26 UTC
(However, stable users will still have the breakage, since 18.04.x is still ~arch.)
