I recently installed a new linux and this was driving
me nuts, so I figured someone else might be having
the same problem and would appreciate the solution.
When I'd type or cut&paste a long command on the
commandline, instead of continuing on a new line
it overwrote itself.
The solution is to put this in your ~/.bashrc:
shopt -s checkwinsize
and then source it with:
Better yet, put it in your systemwide bashrc in /etc
and then source that in each open window.
Hope this helps someone, either now or when searching
the Usenet archives at googlegroups in the future.
