Comment 1 Kjartan Maraas 2006-04-25 13:50:52 EDT
I changed the transparency patch a bit and uploaded a new src.rpm which works
for me at http://www.gnome.org/~kmaraas/gnome-terminal-2.14.1-10.src.rpm
Comment 2 Kristian Høgsberg 2006-04-25 16:53:23 EDT
Kjartan, thanks for the fix.  I updated it a bit more to use GDK for getting the
selection owner and rebuilt the package.  Closing bug.

I have this problem with gnome-terminal-2.14.1-7 from FC5 updates-testing repo,
since vte was updated (vte-0.12.1-1.fc5.1)

[zuirdj@pinina ~]$ gnome-terminal
