Description Mikhail T. 2004-09-01 17:30:38 UTC
For me the problem manifests itself, when I run top(1). There are some users here with long user names, which pushes COMMAND column in top's output to the very right -- 'D' is in the 80th position. This works fine in xterm, but on the consoles (cons25, cons30, etc.) the screen gets garbled -- an empty line is inserted between the column titles and the listing of processes. I don't think, the problem is top-specific. Either there is something about the cons* terminal types or the sc-console. Since manuall setting TERM to xterm on a console does not help, it is, probably, sc(4). How-To-Repeat: Create a user with the longest name possible. Run top on the text console.

Responsible Changed From-To: rafan->freebsd-bugs Put back into pool. There are detailed explanations on freebsd-bugs@ mailing by ncurses author. As he stated, ncurses can not fix this problem since it depends on many other program. However, I agree with mi@ that this is indeed a problem.
