$TERM is xterm

To describe again:
Code:
# cp -iv filea.txt fileb.txt /mnt
Now, to copy filec.txt just changing one letter, one does not
know:
Code:
cp -iv fileac.txt
cp -iv fileactxt
cp -iv filcatxt ...
What edit results. Because, the cursor shown does not
correspond to its actual editing position within the command line.

Workaround:


One can
Code:
cntl-Q
df
and test if the line about to be run is spelled correctly, since
once the df is shown, the newer command is also shown before it is
run. Slower, works,
but should be corrected...
