In my ~/.inputrc, I have:

        set bell-style none
        set mark-directories on
        set mark-symlinked-directories on
        set print-completions-horizontally on
        set show-all-if-ambiguous on
        set visible-stats on

newline somewhere. This bug doesn't show up in situations where the builtin
more-like pager gets invoked.


GNOME tends to have a lot of long executables, so type gnome[tab] to see
what I'm talking about. You'll need to have a ~/.inputrc similar to mine of
