Description Zdenek Kabelac 2008-12-04 12:13:10 EST
Description of problem: I've started to notice that I'm now missing some text written on the begining of the line: i.e. make -C tools make: Entering directory `/misc/tools' : Nothing to be done for `all'. : Leaving directory `/misc/tools' daemons instead of the text written in xterm: make: Entering directory `/misc/tools' make: Nothing to be done for `all'. make: Leaving directory `/misc/tools' make -C daemons Usually could be noticed while running make - I'm not really sure if there are any control command printed or what other reason could be for this behavior. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnome-terminal-2.24.2-2.fc11.x86_64 How reproducible: Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Actual results: Expected results: Additional info:

I can confirm this, but it appears to be an issue with the new vte (0.19.1-1). Cannot reproduce with vte downgraded to 0.17.4-1.fc10. Running on modeset radeon r5xx if that matters...

Created attachment 325730 [details] gnome-terminal (vte) missing symbols And its not only at the beginning of the line here. See attachment.

Ouch, not good. Does it happen regularly? If yes, can one of you record it inside script(1) and see if replaying that reproduces? Thanks

Created attachment 325742 [details] typescript Here is one that always has issues. Not always in the same places but almost everytime on the last two lines of output. In general it seems to happen almost every time there is a burst of output at big rate, regardless of what the output actually is.

Just doing while true ; do echo -n "#" ; done produces a very raindrops-falling-upwards display. Pretty random.

Fixed in rawhide.
