           Summary: Terminal does not handle "special characters" properly
                    (backspace, etc)
           Product: OpenMoko
           Version: 2007
          Platform: Neo1973
               URL: http://daxxar.slask.no/images/backspace-block.png
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: openmoko-terminal
        AssignedTo: buglog at lists.openmoko.org
        ReportedBy: jorgen at devsoft.no

When you use backspace or the arrow keys, the terminal prints blocks instead of
updating the input line like it should. The actual line is updated, so pressing
enter executes it like it should.
See http://daxxar.slask.no/images/backspace-block.png for an example. After
"Example: ", I entered - verbatim: 'f', 'o', 'o', <backspace>.
If you use the matchbox-keyboard (that has arrow up, down, etc) it does the
same. Getting it to redraw (using ^L, resizing terminal, etcetera) makes it show
it like it should.
