Question dash every time I hit enter in gnome (rh9) in everything

Every time I hit enter in gnome for rh9 (whether it be in mozilla, terminal, nautilus, etc. etc.) in stead of justa new line, it starts off the break with a dash. As you can understand this would be frustrating when trying to write code or execute commands.
This is what i see when I hold down enter
-every time
-If you have any ideas where this can be modified, let me know

In /etc/sysconfig/i18n try changing the first line from LANG="en_US.UTF-8" to LANG="en_US"

Then you "should" be able to do a "source etc/sysconfig/i18n"

If the source command does not work, you will have to log out and log back in. See if that helps.
