Many times I am entering long commands in my bash command line and I need to change a few characters near the middle of the command.
When I use putty, I can hold the left arrow and wait for the cursor to get to the point where I want to change the command.
When I use MobaXterm and I hold the left arrow, the cursor starts moving left but after 5 or 6 characters it starts deleting the characters, thus garbling my command.
How can I get MobaXterm to NOT delete characters when I hold the left arrow when I want to move the cursor?
MobaXterm Personal Edition 6.2 installed on Windows 7 64 bit
UPDATE: this only occurs with one account, but on many servers
Furthermore: I've noticed that once the characters are deleted, my cursor is now in an edit mode where I can use the vi commands: 'h' moves the cursor to the right, 'l' moves the cursor left, 'x' deletes characters, 'i' puts me in insert mode, etc.
