You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
I'm not sure this is really a bug of Eterm, will make more observations on other
terminals and then perhaps re-classify this report.
This bad behavior is very difficult to reproduce deterministically: it happens
often, but I can't reproduce it simply by pressing the same keys as in the case
when it happened.
(If you experienced something similar, let's collect more data here!)
I use Capslock for switching the keyboard layout between Russian and English.
I do not use xxkb or any layout indicators.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. switch to Russian in another window
2. start typing something in Eterm while there is a bash prompt there (the last
time when it happened, I wanted to type "mount", I typed: ьщгте<ENTER>)
3. then I see that it's wrong, so I press Capslock (now there is a bash prompt
again, so I press Capslock when the line is empty, only the prompt)
The terminal disappears.
bash seems not be crucial for this, it happened in apt-shell also.
It seems that is is important that the line is empty when you press Capslock.
The terminal doesn't close unexpectedly.
So, I've been testing aterm for several months (aterm-1.0.1-alt2 now): this bug
is not a property of aterm. Now I'm starting to test xterm (xterm-235-alt1) for
please try segfaulting more recent Eterm if it ever comes to Sisyphus again :)
