Description David Balažic 2003-11-10 05:10:35 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
open new term window
create some content ( ls -lR ) so that content for about 3 times the
actual windows height is present ( the scroll bar is about the third
of the window height )

enlarge the window vertically to add about 5 lines of text
the new space appears a empty lines at the bottom

click on the scroll bar and very slowly start to move it upwards

The moment the move is detected , the window content jumps down, so
the new empty lines are not visible any more. If you move the scroll
bar up and down, you
can not get back the original state with the 5 empty lines at the bottom.

The correct picture appears if the user presses a key ( like space ).



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-terminal-2.4.0.1-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open new terminal window
2. create some content ( eg. by running ls -lR ) until content for
about 3 times the actual window height is present ( the scroll bar is
about the third of the window height )
3. enlarge the window vertically to add about 5 lines of text (the new
space appears a empty lines at the bottom of the window)
4. click on the scroll bar and very slowly start to move it upwards

Actual Results:  The moment the move is detected , the window content
jumps down, so the new empty lines are not visible any more. If you
move the scroll bar up and down, you can not get back the original
state with the 5 empty lines at the bottom, only to the position where
the last non-empty line is at the bottom.
The correct picture appears if the user presses a key ( like space ),
then the window content "jumps" to the original state, with the empty
lines at the bottom displayed.

Expected Results:  normal scrolling of the window content, without
special behavior for the last few empty lines.

Fedora Core 1 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
