Hi Andrew,

You were right about how it does this on all platforms now.. last week I finally got hold of a spare box to put GNU/Linux on, did a checkout/compile, and tested it there. The behavior is now the same for both the x86 build and the osx build.

However, for the default Emacs with Red Hat 8 and the default Emacs with osx, you can still edit/run commands on any line in the shell buffer... so I need to report this higher up the chain. (Any hints?)

When in shell mode, I can edit lines from a program's output, but
the start of line/end of line somehow become reset.

For example, I run the 'find' command on a directory tree, and a
series of filenames are printed. I arrow up to one, type 'ls -l ' at
the start of line, but now the end of the line is where the cursor is
instead of at the end of the file name. When I hit RET I get a
listing of the current directory.


This is how the shell mode in Emacs behaves on all platforms.  I don't
know if it is a bug.
