Bug#27705: Mysterious problems with dselect
For several months I have had a problem with dselect, which I usually run
under screen. Often, (about one in two times) after having [I]nstalled
files, the dselect process stops, as if I had pressed ^Z. Here is a screen
Setting up xfstt (0.9.9-7) ...
Installing new version of config file /etc/init.d/xfstt ...
Starting X TrueType Font Server: xfstt.
Setting up libhdf4g (4.1r2-4) ...
Press enter to continue.
 Done remountusr rw
+ Stopped dselect
Another very strange problem is that sometimes (about one in ten times),
after leaving dselect, the first characer entered is misteriously followed
by a CR. For example, if I leave dselect and then enter "ls", the
resulting output from bash is:
bash: l: command not found
Or, alternatively, if I press <up arrow> as the first thing after leaving
dselect, the result is a quick error message that I don't see and a logout
I don't know how to capture those behaviours, and I have not reported them
until now because they seemed so strange and erratic to me, but now I see
they tend to happen regularly, if not always.
