Description James Laver 2005-12-03 10:16:16 EST
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7 Description of problem: First of all, i've been discussing this in #fedora on freenode.net and someone has suggested it is a dnotify bug which has been fixed in the .14 kernel. however I am currently running the .14 kernel as witnessed below. [root@positive-outlook james]# uname -r 2.6.14-1.1637_FC4 When the cursor should wrap onto a new line as there is no space left on the current line, it does not wrap onto a new line but overwrites the current line or any of the ones preceding it. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnome-terminal-2.10.0-2 How reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: This most commonly happens when it has been running for long periods and when i have more tabs open, so one presumes that leaving it going for extended periods and using it and having multiple tabs open will help to replicate. Actual Results: the cursor overwrote the beginning of the current line or any random character above it Expected Results: the cursor should have started writing on a new line Additional info: I am willing to hold a VNC session if it is believed this will help someone to understand why it's happening.

I am having the same problem with kernel 2.6.14-1.1653_FC4 and gnome-terminal 2.10.0-2

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd. Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and either update the target product or close it ? Thanks.

Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained. Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the corresponding Fedora version.
