Description Richard Henderson 2004-11-09 15:59:11 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041020
Firefox/0.10.1

Description of problem:
When using mutt, the screen becomes corrupt almost instantaneously.
It looks as if the clear-to-end-of-line command is being ignored.

This is most visible with the half-page scroll operations; full-page
scroll operations appear to clear the entire screen first, and so do
not show the corruption.

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

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Here I've got one gnome-terminal and one xterm open.  $TERM is set
to xterm in both.  I've opened a random message that's long enough
to scroll.  I've scrolled down a half-page (d), refreshed the screen
(^L), then scrolled up a half-page (u) and pasted the results.

Due to the wrapping that happens in the web form boxes, I'll have
to attach the output.  I'll also attach the mail message used for
the tests.

TERM=gnome mutt will solve this. See also bug 122815, bug 134300, and
bug 128375.
