Package: libedit2
Version: 3.1-20160903-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

the update to 20160903-1 causes the input to LLDB to break.
Instead of the expected characters, random unicode sequences
show up, so e.g.

If I type
(lldb) test
it will show up as
(lldb) \U+9F574\U+9F565\U+9F573\U+9F574

Downgrading to 20150325-1+b1 fixes this.
