Description Ed Maste freebsd_committer 2020-08-24 22:02:17 UTC
xterm-358                      Terminal emulator for the X Window System
vim-console-8.2.0869           Improved version of the vi editor (console only)

Reproduction steps:
1. echo '*italic*' > foo.markdown
2. vim foo.markdown # observe italic text
3. quit vim :q
4. observe shell prompt and all other output is now italic

- reset(1) does not clear the attribute
- printf '\033[0m' does not clear the attribute
- printf '\033[3;0m' *does*

konsole does not exhibit this behaviour
Comment 1 Emanuel Haupt freebsd_committer 2020-08-25 06:16:31 UTC
xterm has been updated to 359 just yesterday. The changelog states the following changes:


Does 359 exhibit the same behaviour?
Comment 2 Emanuel Haupt freebsd_committer 2020-08-25 06:22:03 UTC
Could you please share your vim configuration as my vim configuration does not change the the font to italic with the provided reproduction steps.
Comment 3 Thomas E. Dickey 2020-08-25 07:59:45 UTC
It might also help to have a "typescript" (from the script command), showing what actually went to the terminal, in case vim is doing something unusual.
Comment 4 Emanuel Haupt freebsd_committer 2020-08-28 06:45:33 UTC
I was trying to test whether there is a general problem with italic formatting:

echo -e "\e[3mitalic w/o reset"
[console is now italic]
[console is back to 'normal']

I think we need more information about your vim/plugin use case.
Comment 5 Thomas E. Dickey 2020-09-18 00:10:13 UTC
Someone reported a problem with italics which might be the same as this.
I've made a fix which will be in #360.

(In reply to Emanuel Haupt from comment #7)
Indeed, issue is not reproducible with v361
