stty erase WTF
What's been done to terminal handling in NetBSD 7.0?
I now see the following, grossly broken behavior:
1) On my ssh client, stty shows erase is ^?
2) I ssh to a NetBSD-7 machine; stty shows erase is ^?
3) I "su -" or "sudo -i". stty shows erase is now ^H
The culprit appears to be these lines in /root/.profile:
if [ -x /usr/bin/tset ]; then
eval $(tset -sQrm 'unknown:?unknown')
But whatever the reason is, this needs to be fixed. My ssh session
explicitly propagated erase=^? to the netbsd-7 system, and nothing
we ship in the system defaults has any business overriding that.
