Description Dylan Borg 2015-03-17 06:48:39 UTC
Using the latest mono master (b0e3d25ad0f430e7b510b98443976b8670349415), when I run a mono process my shell's text remains greyed (changed by the code that ran) instead of returning to teh usual default colour. Also the shell no longer shows me the input line as I type in my next command. Only using "reset" brings it back to normal. Is mono keeping some sort of control on the shell?

If we emit control characters that are interfering with the shell, this could happen. Are you printing anything in particular? I can't duplicate with a Console.WriteLine test.

I am using the asp.net 5 command line tools. Using kpm restore does this in particular

They are changing foreground colors a lot while executing.
