Description of problem:
I regulary use the TinyFugue application, which has a handy "split
window" mode where bottom 3 lines of the screen stay still and work as
the input area, while the rest of the screen is a normal "window" that
scrolls upwards. Up until about two weeks ago, the upper part of the
screen had the ability to normally scroll back, but that has
disappeared now and the lines that overflow when scrolling the upper
part of the screen simply go away without entering the scrollback
buffer. This is rather inconvenient :(.

The application in question is at http://tf.tcp.com, sorry for not
knowing what codes it uses to do its scrolling in detail.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-terminal 2.7.3-1 & vte 0.11.10-7

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Just run the TinyFugue application in visual mode in the terminal
window and observe the scrollback behavior.
