+Bug#: 81540
+Product: Mono: Class Libraries
+Version: 1.2
+OS: GNU/Linux [Other]
+OS Details: Gentoo, amd64, mono-
+Status: NEW

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: Console.Clear () doesn't reset cursor position.
+The attached program (requires gmcs) shows a bug in Console.  Run the 
+program from a terminal window with the cursor near the bottom of the 
+screen.  Upon running, it will clear the screen.  Press backspace and the 
+cursor will jump to the bottom of the screen.
+The problem can be worked around by calling Console.SetCursorPosition(0,0) 
+after clearing the screen.
+I believe the fix is in TermInfoDriver.cs that the Clear() method needs to 
+reset the cursor position.
