Wondering if anyone else has seen this and has a solution:
- Context: Cygwin on Windows 7, ssh into Ubutntu 16.04.6
- Spend some time in the shell, so your command history has something in it.
- press Up Arrow to see previous commands
- press Home (or left arrow repeatedly) to get to the beginning of the line
RESULT: the cursor won't go all the way to the beginning of the line. It'll stop about 10 chars short and won't let you go any farther. For example: [prompt text]$ ls /somedir/anotherdir/ Instead of the cursor going to the space before "ls", it only goes to the "t" in "somesdir" It's impossible to go back further to the beginning of the command (end of the prompt).
EXPECT: Home takes the cursor to just left of the "l" in "ls"
Thanks to anyone who has a solution!
