I am using a self compiled dev version of Octave under linux (hg id

And this is how to reproduce the (buggy?) behavior I observed with it:

* open Octave (gui or cli, it happens in both)
* type a long command into the Octave console (in my case it needs a line that
has more than 55 characters), not pressing the enter key at all
* when typing the last characters they will appear at the beginning if the
line and overwrite the formerly displayed characters there

In my case I type the following:

>> 123456789+123456789+123456789+123456789+123456789+1234

the first three characters being my Octave prompt. When typing further I see
the following:


(Have a look at the beginning of the text line!)

When executing this weired code line, it works fine in general. It seems to
only be about the text display.

I have not had this problem in older (also self compiled) Octave versions,
that's why I marked this issue as regpression.

Does anyone else see this?
