Description of problem:
When using the scroll bar with the mouse to scroll up a gnome-terminal that has
some content and then slowly scroll down back to the bottom, some corruption occur.
If one scrolls up again and then scrolls back down by clicking below the scroll
bar ( below the "handle" but still inside the scroller GUI element ), then there
is no corruption.
I'll attach a screenshot of the corruption.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gfx card is radeon 8500LE
System is a fresh Fedora Test3 install

Screenshot of corruption (see at bottom)

Screen shot of correct content, for comparison
I have also seen this corruption with an fully updated FC1. This is on
a laptop with an Intel video chipset.
I can provide more details on request.
Happened again. VGAis radeon 8500LE.
Does not seem to happen on smaller windows.
Maximized windows always have this problem,it seems.
- start new gnome-terminal
- maximize its size ( my screen size is 1024x768x24bit@85Hz )
- fill it ( cat /etc/* is good )
- scroll with the mouse up and then slowly down ( by dragging the
scroller widget on the right )
result : corruption
This happens to me also. It is the same corruption as the already
posted images. The severity depends on the scroll method used.
This problem did not exist with this laptop on Fedora Core 2. It is
new to Fedora Core 3.
Video Card ATI Radeon 9000 Mobility IGP
Fedora Core 3 (From DVD)
1. Maximize gnome-terminal
2. Get more than a screens worth of text
3. Scroll up then down using steps below. Corruption only happens
when scrolling down.
The corruption only occurs when scrolling using the scroll-wheel or by
grabbing the scroll-bar and dragging it up and down.
Corruption does not occur while using the Shift+PgUp and Shift+PgDn
keys or by clicking in the empty space outside of the scrollbar.
AFAIK this has been fixed in 0.11.13 and 0.11.14 which have been issued in FC3,
FC4 and FC5.
