Description Christopher Leaver 2006-07-01 10:50:35 UTC
Version:           2.5.3 (using KDE 3.5.3, Gentoo)
Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.6 (Gentoo 3.3.6, ssp-3.3.6-1.0, pie-8.7.8)
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.12-gentoo-r4

when I open a console this happens:
chris@monkey ~ $ ^Lcd '/home/chris/code/THEc++book'
      cd: command not found
using set -o emacs   in console fixes this but, I think this is a bug :-(

This is because the Konsole part emits "^L" in new sessions.

"^L" clears the terminal in most situations, but obviously not with bash in vi mode. My question is, however, why even bother with the "^L", isn't the terminal already cleared?
