Description Nalin Dahyabhai 2009-02-02 11:16:02 EST
Description of problem:
When I open a terminal window, and use the 'reset' command at the command-line, the terminal windows shrinks.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.25.5-1.fc11

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run 'resize' to check the terminal dimensions.
2. Run 'reset' to reset and clear the scrollback buffer.
3. Run 'resize' again.
  
Actual results:
The second run will show a smaller number (in my case, one column and one row are lost).

Expected results:
Terminal stays the same size.

Additional info:
In case any of this affects it, I'm using the 'miscfixed' bitmap font (10x20 pixels), and metacity as the window manager.  This doesn't happen in the 'vte' test program (from vte-devel-0.19.4-3.fc11).

Caused by upstream

Which can be reverted with the attached patch. Sorry, no motivation to chase this further at this moment.
