I can reproduce this. The garbage characters are predominantly NULs
with a \022 thrown in.
----- Forwarded message from Rene Reusner <[email protected]> -----
On a sarge box i discovered the following bug with the new zsh.
I use interactive menu completion and normaly i scroll through
the items via tab, but this doesnt work on the new zsh anymore.
I type an command, like ls, type a space
and then press tab, to get the filelist.
A menu appears with the files in this directory and the first entry
Then normaly, i press tab again and again, to cycle through
these items. But this doesnt work anymore, the shell puts some weird
chars in the prompt, like ^@^@^@ and i cant use tab anymore.
<tab> .. to get the list, this works
<tab> .. normaly to scroll through the list, but the new zsh print some
weird characters and i cant use tab anymore.
copy from the terminal
0307.pdf < first selected item.
A work around is, to press some cursor keys to move around in this menu, but
the resulting completion is wrong. ^@^ is inserted before the filename
and the resulting filename is wrong.
I also deleted the .zcompdump and started a new shell and also emptied
my .zsenv only for the important settings.
My terminal is a normal xterm.
My .zshenv is:
autoload -U compinit
compinit -C # don't perform security check
zstyle ':completion:*' menu select interactive
On the old shell on woody, Version is 4.07 the menu completion works
This bug makes the new zsh with interactive menucompletion
nearby unusually for me.
