+Bug#: 77518
+Product: Mono: Class Libraries

+Summary: Console 2.0 Problems Escape Codes and SetCursorPosition
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what you
+are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+Under certain circumstances the console outputs escape codes when you call
+any Console.Read____() function.
+The Console.*Height and Console.*Width do not appear to work.  This causes
+serious problems with the SetCursorPosition function which asserts that the
+position fits in the demensions of Console.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Attached source. 
+Actual Results:
+Escape sequences outputted to the console.  ArgumentOutOfRangeException
+when setting the cursor position.  Invalid screen size.  All of the Linux
+colors are dark, none are very readable.
+Expected Results:
+No exceptions and no escape codes.
+How often does this happen? 
+Most of the time. I think it depends on how fast the terminal responds to
+setcolor/setposition calls comapred to how soon you call the read()
+Additional Information:
+Coversant is also willing to contribute the code to the console gui stuff I
+did.  I'll be sending it on the list, along with an example.  The problems
+are very apparent there.
