Doesn't seem like a bug to me. You asked your terminal emulator to clear
the screen. It did so. Now you complain that it's "too clean" :)

I understand how it may look confusing, but I don't think the term has
much option here. Suppose that instead of the shell, you were executing
something else (eg. reading a log file). What would be the "right"
behavior there? Its only option is to clear its "screen".

If you know you were in a shell, and want the prompt to reappear, you
only need to press enter after the reset.

Best regards

PS: While I agree that what you are considering a bug is not
Debian-specific, I don't think you had enough data at bug submission
time to ascertain that this was an upstream bug (specially not knowing
which was the upstream provider). However, you did a good job describing
the bug report itself. :)
