Description bwelling 2005-06-17 05:30:56 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
When tcsh attempts to output filenames in columns (either using the built in ls-F or as a result of tab completion), an off-by-one error causes the display to be wider than the terminal window in some cases, such as running ls-F in /sys.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce: /sys

Additional info:

This has been fixed in tcsh 6.14.02, which is unfortunately not listed on the main tcsh web page, or easily findable from the ftp sites listed on the web page. I found links ( and in the mailine list.  I added these patches to the spec file, removed the iconv patch which is subsumed, rebuilt, and it works much better now.
