In recent updated  mysql utitilities 1.4.3 can not delete mistyped messages in mysqluc console:

Using 1.4.3:

[root@linuxsrv3 ~]# mysqluc
Launching console ...

Type 'help' for a list of commands or press TAB twice for list of utilities.

For eg type:

mysqluc> kjsdnfwf 

and after try to delete using "backspace" you will see that there is no effect it does not work.

So can't delete message press enter for a new line:

mysqluc> kjsdnfwf

Unknown command: kjsdnfwf 


Tested in 2 different machines.

But with 1.3.5 version there is no such problem.

Also tested with 1.4.2 RC which i installed from .rpm there is no such problem.

so the problem persists only for 1.4.3 GA from official repo.

How to repeat:
See Desctription.

Suggested fix:
No idea.

// Regression
Confirmed on centOS6.5/OL6 - 1.4.2 has no issues but 1.4.3 is affected

Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Utilities/Fabric 1.4.4 release, and here's the changelog entry:

On Linux, the "backspace" key was not functioning in the "mysqluc"
environment, therefore the entered text could not be changed.

Thank you for the bug report.
