Description Alex Stewart 2006-03-05 16:39:50 EST
Description of problem:

When I edit a long file in vi (note, not vim, only /bin/vi) using gnome-
terminal (TERM=xterm), the bottom line is not cleared properly when scrolling 
down, so if the next line is shorter than the previous one, part of the end of 
the previous line is still displayed at the bottom of the screen.

If I cover the window with something else and bring it back to the foreground, 
or if I attempt to select that region of the window, it will redraw it 
correctly, so this appears to be only a window drawing issue and not actually 
in the screen buffer of the terminal.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Open a gnome-terminal window.
2.  Open a long file with lines of varying width in /bin/vi.
3.  Scroll down until a line that's significantly shorter than the previous 
line scrolls onto the screen.

Actual results:

  Remnants of the previous line stay on the last line of the screen when it 
scrolls up.

Expected results:

  Scrolling without leaving droppings behind.

Screenshot of problem.

Note: last line should read only "They hadn't any feet."  The bits after that
are left over from previous lines that scrolled up.

I see this too with the terminal set to vt100.
