Centos 6.3 64bit , pac version: pac-22.214.171.124-2.x86_64.
Whenever I SSH into a terminal, and try and edit a file with vim, vi or nano, the shell becomes corrupt and I cannot edit anything. Apart from that other commands work fine…..

It's not PAC itself, but Gnome2::Vte library
Please, try changing the terminal emulation on a terminal, and try again:
Goto "Edit connection" -> "Terminal Options" -> check "Use these personal options" -> change "Term emulation" from "xterm" to any other value, like "vt100", "ansi", or any other you may think working.
Save and try.
Please, let me know the results.
hmmmmmm perhaps I am not passing environment variables which are needed….
Hi thanks for your reply, I had a feeling it was terminal emulation and realised I did not have xterm on the remote host (because the remote host is installed without X) I installed xterm and things are looking better! :)
Oh thanks again for developing this awesome software!
Thanks to you for trying PAC and for your patience! :)
Results: I got excited too soon! :(
Ok this centos system does not have X installed and I will not be installing X on it:
Ok so I had no real terminal emulators installed so I installed the ones below on the remote host:
vt100: made it worse.
ansi: print weird squares in the console
xterm: when installed on the remote host improved it 1 in every 3 goes it works
rxvt : same result :(
vte : not looking good
gnome-terminal : weird squares
putty : weird squares and patterns
FYI this shouldn't make a difference but it's a Virtual Host via KVM.
