Description Hesty 2004-11-25 19:37:17 EST
Description of problem: Gnome terminal only scrolls the bottom line with BitchX (and maybe epic too). Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Gnome terminal with FC3 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start BitchX, connect to a server (EFNET, Dalnet, etc). 2. Join a channel if necessary. 3. Actual results: Notice only the bottom line scrolls with new text. All the lines above stay static. Expected results: The whole screen should scroll. Additional info: Konsole behaves the right way.

Same with epic if you split the screen Something is mishandling scrolling regions ?

I just met this on an upgrade from FC2 to FC3. There is a workaround, luckily. In case any of this helps narrow stuff down... I use epic with a "split screen", ie created by /window new. Generally on terminals which are about 70 lines long (but the normal 80 chars wide; ie, I'm not talking about maximised windows). No menubar. $TERM="xterm". As soon as irc's output reached the bottom of the screen, I got the same problem. Tried irssi (not a RH-supplied rpm, but an rpm for Fedora) and the same thing happened. I don't think irssi is the same code base as epic? Things which had no effect: * adding a menubar. * menu->Reset+Clear * ^L What worked (yay!) * export TERM="gnome" Killed epic, set TERM to "gnome", restarted epic, things worked as expected.

Sort of workaround and might shed some new light. If I run BitchX from screen, the scrolling works fine most of the time. If the scrolling misbehaves, I can simply detach the screen and reattach and the scrolling works again.

Fedora Core 3 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 FC5 updates or in the FC6 test release, reopen and change the version to match. Thank you!

Closing per lack of response to previous request for information. This bug was originally filed against a much earlier version of Fedora Core, and significant changes have taken place since the last version for which this bug is confirmed. Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security fixes only. Please install a still supported version and retest. If it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct version. Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the product to Fedora Legacy. Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not get to this bug earlier.
