Script/console cursor goes crazy sometimes on XP


#1

I’m on WinXP SP2, Ruby 1.8.4, Rails 1.1.2.

Sometimes when I’m editing a line in script/console - that is, I’m using
the cursor keys or backspace key to edit the text on the current line -
the cursor suddenly flies off to the previous line out in space
somewhere, and typing anything after that just results in characters
being entered at weird places.

Anybody else have this problem?

Yes, never found a solution. Even happens in
http://sourceforge.net/projects/console sometimes.

Yes, this is terrible. I have this in plain irb, too. It is driving me
crazy and I kick
the wall and beat up little children when it happens. Help save the
children, help me fix
my readline functionality! WinXP SP2.
