Input lines are echoed in emacs shell-mode after invoking gnuplot

Bug #533270 reported by Toshio Ito on 2010-03-06

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnuplot (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: emacs23

emacs23: 23.1+1-4ubuntu3.1
gnuplot: 4.2.5-2

I use Xubuntu 9.10 (Karmic).
After invoking gnuplot in shell-mode, every command input to the shell is echoed.

To reproduce:
1. $ emacs -q
2. In emacs, type M-x shell
3. In shell-mode, type
 $ gnuplot
 to run gnuplot
4. Type C-d to quit gnuplot.
5. Type, for example,
 $ ls
 in shell-mode, then you will see "ls" itself followed by the content of your home directory.
 The line of "ls" should not be shown.

I admit this is a very trivial problem, but a bit annoying to me.

- "python" and "fdisk", which also have their own prompt, do not cause this problem.
- When I invoke gnuplot in ansi-term mode, the echoing does not occur.

Thank you for this bug report and the very clear directions to reproduce it. I can confirm this bug exists in Lucid Lynx using emacs23.1+1-4ubuntu5. A workaround is to exit the shell and restart it. The echo then turns off. This has been forwarded upstream by message to <email address hidden> according to the directions in emacs23 for bug reporting. Thanks for taking the time to make Ubuntu better!

I cannot reproduce that. In any case, this looks rather like a bug in
gnuplot clobbering the terminal (echo) settings.
