Feature Change Request


From: pesarif
Subject: Feature Change Request

Hello!

I just upgraded from Linux-Mandrake 7.2 to 8.0 (Pentium-optimised 
distribution, which uses their own cooked gcc).
This resulted in bash being "upgraded" from 2.0.4.12 to 2.0.4.18.

I notice a new "feature" that I really dislike (sorry): If the last line of 
output from a program doesn't have a newline, bash overwrites it.

To illustrate my point, typing "echo -n Hello" in 2.0.4.12 gives (or 
something similar -- I don't have bash 2.0.4.12 anymore):
address@hidden /root]#

In 2.0.4.18:
address@hidden /root]#

This new "feature" (or bug :)) really ruins some of my programs as the last 
line of output "disappears" just because I didn't append a newline to the 
output (and sometimes because of the nature of the program, I don't want to 
append a newline).

Please revert this behaviour back to that of 2.0.4.12 i.e. "address@hidden 
/root]#" instead of "address@hidden /root]#".

Thanks,
pesarif
