Summary0006586: QTerminal irratic behavior when reusing previous commands and/or reusing a previous command and backspacing through it.

It's hard to explain actually.. It's like a buffer gets over loaded and causes the command you are editing to disappear and the terminal on its very own cuts and or pastes portions of the block of text [command] and appends or prepends the new command. It's very frustrating. You are forced to issue CTL + c to get the command line back and or close the terminal all together.

I recently updated the firmware on this bluetooth keyboard so it could be the keyboard and I've double checked that there are no stuck keys and there are no stuck keys. I will plug in a USB keyboard and see if i can repeat the problem.

Steps To Reproduce

Press up key in QTerminal and make changes [or edits] to that command using a cimbination of tab completions, left and right arrow keys, and backspacing.

Additional Information

If you backspace through a command more than one line in lenght and hold the backspace key you will definately reproduce this behaviour.
