I've noticed (on more than a few Linux servers) while I'm editing a configuration file via SSH the text cursor loses it's place. The only way to regain its correct visual placement is by stretching the terminal window. It's as if it's lagging up; but I'm on a solid connection.

Anyone?

OS: (CentOS, Ubuntu)
SSH: Standard SSH server on both ssh distribs (via MAC client terminal)
Editor: Nano

* It happens on any text file size.

Maybe others have seen this and will just know the answer, but for those of us who haven't, I suggest you include more details in your question. For example, what OS and SSH client are you using? What editor are you using? Does the configuration file have long lines? etc. –  fission Jan 17 '12 at 1:27
    
Yeah, more details of what's specifically going on are needed. –  Ward Jan 17 '12 at 2:32

@Michael I'm gonna have to repeat fissions questions: What editor are you using? Does the configuration file have long lines? Also supply any other possibly relevant information –  Mathias R. Jessen Jan 17 '12 at 5:34
    
Added more detail above. –  MKN Web Solutions Jan 17 '12 at 18:04
