Subject: devtodo: Cursor sometimes retains color of last entry
Date: Tue, 20 Jul 2004 12:10:56 -0700
Package: devtodo
Version: 0.1.17-3
Severity: minor

You can't tell from this, but the cursor after the last prompt here is red:

bash$ echo $TERM
bash$ mkdir todotest
bash$ cd todotest
bash$ todo -a test -p 1
Index of new item is 1
todo: warning, created database (.todo) has group or world permissions
bash$ todo

It happens with any of the priority colors.

Note: It only happens when it's on the last line or two of the display, and
causes the text to scroll.

Any characters typed appear normal, and the cursor returns to normal with
the next newline, backspace, or delete.  Actually, it appears every
character on the line starts with red text, and is reset to normal when
something is entered on it.

After backspacing, the cursor becomes normal, but after typing back out to
where the cursor was it becomes red again.

Highlighting the last line, "bash$ " and any typed characters are
highlighted normally, with black letters on a white background.  The
untyped portion of the line is solid red.  (My xterms are white text on a
black background.)

Typing enough characters to wrap around the end of the line also returns
the cursor to normal.

It happens in an xterm with any setting of $TERM I tried (xterm, vt100,
ansi, vt52, dumb, linux, screen), but did not happen within an xterm
running screen, with any of those $TERMs.

It did not happen in gnome-terminal or Eterm.

xterm is 4.3.0-7

This looks like a more informative report on the same issue as #252873.
(should be reassigned to xterm as a duplicate of that report).

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Reflecting a little more, there are two bugs here.  One is in devtodo,
and the other is in xterm.  Here's an expanded typescript of a test of
the reported conditions (ignore the ugly bash output ;-):

Script started on Wed Jul 21 15:08:42 2004
\E[1m/tmp/todotest (1) 
\ntom@cyclops:/tmp/todotest$ /usr/bin/todo -a test p1\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b\b

\E[1m/tmp/todotest (2) 
\nScript done on Wed Jul 21 15:08:58 2004

The \E[31m begins a red color, and then devtodo puts out a carriage return line
feed combination before resetting the color.  That's backwards.  xterm
shifts-in blank lines of the current background color (red).  That's by design
(for reasons too lengthy to bother discussing).  A quick check of devtodo's
code shows that it is mostly hardcoded (hence the uniform behavior ignoring

The minor bug in xterm is that it's picking up the red cell's color and not
resetting to default by the time the prompt comes up.  I'm looking to see if
there's a good fix for that.

 xfree86 (4.3.0.dfsg.1-8) unstable; urgency=high
   Changes by Denis Barbier:
   * Update Danish debconf template translations (thanks, Claus Hindsgaul).
     (Closes: #270503)
   * Grab /etc/X11/xkb/symbols/pc/us_intl from XFree86 CVS (2003-10-04).  This
     makes us_intl multi-layout aware, and binds the right Meta key to
     Mode_Switch.  (Closes: #271326, #234085)
   * Revert upstream change to altwin behavior applied in 4.3.0.dfsg.1-1.
     The Meta_* keysyms must be removed from the shift level of Alt keys when
     altwin:meta_win or altwin:left_meta_win are used; otherwise, XKB-unaware
     applications (like GNU Emacs) may believe that mod1 and mod4 are bound to
     Meta keys.
   * Fix inconsistencies in rules/xfree86* files:
     + rules/xfree86: List in $oldlayouts all layouts which are currently not
       multi-layout aware in the Debian xlibs package, including hu_US (thanks,
       Veres Lajos).  (Closes: #247463, #270810)
     + rules/xfree86: Support the lv3:ralt_switch option, which exists in
       xfree86.lst but was forgotten in this file.
     + rules/xfree86: Remove special case that causes PC keyboard models with
       the us_intl layout to load the us layout and add the us_intl layout to
       it.  (Closes: #234085)
     + rules/xfree86.{lst,xml}: Replace the options altwin:meta_super and
       altwin:meta_hyper with the correct names altwin:super_win and
       altwin:hyper_win.  (Closes: #271259)
     + rules/xfree86.{lst,xml}: Synchronize these files.
   Changes by Denis Barbier and Branden Robinson:
   * Add FAQ entry: My keyboard configuration worked with XFree86 4.2; why is
     it messed up now?  (Closes: #259740)
   Changes by Branden Robinson:
   * In the Xsession script, attempt to create a file of non-zero length in
     /tmp; a full filesystem can cause mysterious X session failures.
   * Add FAQ entry: How does the keyboard work in the X Window System?
   * Update XTerm to patch #196 (2004-08-15) from Thomas Dickey's website.
     + Change clearing operations so foreground color attribute is not set.
       Usually this is benign, but in some cases when the cursor color is not
       set explicitly, the cursor would show this color.  (Closes: #252873)
     + Modify initialization and cleanup of utmp data to also compare the
       ut_line member.  (Closes: #256468)
   * Update XTerm FAQ to revision 1.86 (2004-07-28) from Thomas Dickey's
   Changes by Fabio M. Di Nitto:
   * Create debian/tmp/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/doc when NOT_BUILDING_XFREE86_X_SERVER
     is defined.  Fixes FTBFS on s390.
   * Security update (patch #087). Resolves the following issues:
     + CAN-2004-0687: stack overflows in libXpm
     + CAN-2004-0688: integer overflows in libXpm
     (Closes: #272493)
   * Update nv driver and some support code, and grab an XVideo bugfix from
     X.Org CVS as of 2004-09-15:
     + Update 000_post430.diff:
       - Drop nv_setup.c bits.
     + Update 000_stolen_from_HEAD.diff:
       - Include xf86xv.c Xv fix for little-endian machines.
     + Rename 000_stolen_from_HEAD_nv_driver.diff to
       000_stolen_from_xorg_nv_driver and update:
       - Full nv driver from
       - Removed 2 references to XORG_VERSION_CURRENT since it is not defined.
     + Rename to 000_stolen_from_xorg.diff
       and update:
       - Add xaa bits required to compile the new nv driver.
       - Add fbdevhw bits required to compile the new nv driver.
     + Update 030_Xserver_and_driver_region_primitive_fixups.diff:
       - REGION_EQUAL backport from
       - Fix call to REGION_EQUAL in Xv autopaint initialization error
         introduced in 4.3.0.dfsg.1-7.
     + Drop 098_nv_xvideo_fullscreen_fix.diff:
       - Now included upstream.
     + Rediff 911_debian_XF86Config_to_XF86Config-4.diff.
     + Update MANIFEST and xserver-xfree86.install files to reflect the new
       riva128.o submodule.
     (Closes: #269025, #268759, #271235, #270228, #271071, #270714)
   * Update Czech debconf template translations (thanks, Miroslav Kure).
     (Closes: #273516)
   Changes by ISHIKAWA Mutsumi:
   * Update Japanese debconf template translations (thanks, Kenshi Muto).
