Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2013-04-03 12:11:12 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle. Changing version to '19'. (As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.) More information and reason for this action is here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping/Fedora19
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2013-04-08 18:33:40 EDT
according to the upstream bug, this comes down to a font problem. not sure we can do much about it in gnome-terminal.
