osdsh displays part of the previous message

Bug #117544 reported by Robin on 2007-05-29
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
osdsh (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: osdsh

When a long message is displayed with osdctl, followed by a shorter message, the tail end of the longer message is displayed along with the shorter message. This can be worked around by appending a comma at the end of each message displayed.

osdctl -s "This is a very very very long message." displays correctly.
osdctl -s "This message is short." displays "This message is short/ny long message."

Version 0.7.0-8 installed from feisty binaries.
