that's unreasonable and inconsistent with qt (as if somebody would care
one problem is that if only a prompt is read from the pty, there is
simply no newline - and that's sort of the normal case. guess the
function should timeout after 100ms or so and return that - whether it
should still be named readLine at that point is another quesiton. on
top of that, the newline should not be stripped.
btw, i'm all for rewriting kdesu anyway. :)
