Can't delete first character on TTY login

This appears to be the same situation as void linux had 3 months ago and the issue (#6911) has now been closed:
https://github.com/voidlinux/void-packages/issues/6911

I will quote it here:
"

  1. Boot Void linux and wait for the tty login prompt.
  2. Type some characters
  3. Hit backspace

I can’t delete the first character.
The problem disappears on second login attempt after that. "

I am running Tumbleweed with KDE, and when I use Ctrl+Alt+F1-F6 this happens. I’m pretty sure this also happens on my Leap 42.3 server as well, though I don’t currently have physical access to it. I will in a few days.

–Thanks, Greg
