Fwd: [pygtk] A weird problem with raw_input and zvt


I sent the message below to pygtk list thinking I did something wrong.

Now I am sure it's a zvt bug. I am using october-gnome btw.

Ok, I did not and could not reproduce exactly, what is described 
below, in gnome-terminal, BUT if you write a loong line then try to 
get back with arrow then your line will start going nuts.

If this has been known then apologies. Otherwise, tell me and I'll 
submit a bug report if needed!

Also, if I type raw_input('promt: ') in my app, all is well. This is 
really weird!
