same thing going on. that's after switching every vty and the console
to xterm in /etc/ttys as well.
i'm kinda lost on this one. i have determined that somehow, it's the
pager... hang on a sec... lemme try vi.
vi seems to be working properly... it's not the termcap/terminfo...
the only thing causing this seems to be more and less, both.
when i pipe man into cat, everything gets properly interpreted by the
tty/vty/pty, when i use the pager, i get this crap....argh..
