Description Bryan Che 2003-11-26 20:22:20 UTC
I often ssh to other machines and then run "screen emacs -nw" on the
remote machine.  When I use the gnome terminal, however, I encounter
two major problems.  

First, the terminal often times goes completely or partially blank and
doesn't refresh the screen properly--especially when there is
scrolling text.  If I clear the screen, the problem goes away for a
bit but eventually comes back.

Second, on occasion, the gnome-terminal process eats up 100% of my CPU
and ties up my box until I kill the process.  This often happens after
I see lots of refresh problems.
