           Summary: characters in document are scrambled (making konsole
           Product: konsole
           Version: 1.3
          Platform: SuSE RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: konsole-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: richard.bos xs4all nl

Version:           1.3 (using KDE KDE 3.2.0)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
OS:          Linux

Since upgrading from kde-3.1.x to kde-3.2.0 including a upgrade of
konsole from 1.2.x to 1.3 I have difficulties to use vi in konsole.

It is a very specific case and probable not reproducable for you, but I really
hope someone is still able to find a fix for the problem described in
more details below, as it makes working with konsole impossible!!!

Start konsole
Select the session menu and select the right machine, in this particular
case a solaris-2.5/6 system.  If I start editing a file with _vi_
pieces in the file are missing!!!
Or if I search in the file for a particular string, the cursor jumps but
not to the desired sting but to somewhere else.

This started after the upgrade to kde-3.2 and it forces me to use emacs
while I'm not fluent with emacs at all.  Or it requires me to use xterm,
and than I have to type the "ssh remote machine" command on the command line
and I miss the tabs!!!

It seems related to the remote machine connection.  I can't remember that I
encountered this problem at my local machine.

Sorry for giving such a vague description of the problem, but it is really
there and it is annoying as ....  I still hope that you can find somehing in
the code that is responsible for it (perhaps the tab method is responsible
for it).
