      grep is indeed working correctly. The ME version by the way is 20040701 and the corresponding macro files (I have edited me.emf slightly, because on a Z the default user is 'zaurus'. This == $platform and causes problems  when executing 'zaurus.emf' (which is either platform specific file or user settings file).

      I do not have X (just Qt), so I have compiled using the mec entry in the makefile, building a ncurses only microemacs.
      I'll look into the unixterm.c source and see what I can find and try to compile it against termcap (thanks Pierre!).

      Any other suggestions are welcome

      I assume that commands such as 'grep' are working correctly
      so the problem is with the terminal configuration.

      I do not run Zaurus and do not know how Linux is configured for
      this system. Based on problems with other systems then the
      likely culpret is in the source:-

      unixterm.c - TCAPgetattr() not being configured correctly
                           for Zaurus.

      From the  symptoms that you describe then this area of the
      code was added into the last release and fixed most issues
      related to a shell terminal (especially as "su root"
      which caused a lot of problems). Specifically the case
      (isX != 0) which is where you may be mis-configured.

      For the above then open a terminal window and run "me -n".
      Then run a shell - is this OK ? Now run from X off desktop -
      and run a shell does this fail ? If this is the case then
      the (isX != 0) condition is the problem (see specials for
      HP-UX in the code) and the termio modes should be configured.
      To debug this then add some printfs (best to write to
      "/tmp/me.log" so they do not appear on stdout) to work out
      what mode termios is being launched with.

      Hope this helps.
