This is coming from libgpm.

my version of gpm is 

Comment 4 Moritz Barsnick 2004-03-21 17:08:06 EST
Same problem in w3m here. These messages are to stderr, so calling 
the program using "program 2>/dev/null" temporarily works around  
this problem, but it's a really really big pain.

fixed in the latest builds

Comment 8 Moritz Barsnick 2004-04-08 16:08:25 EDT
I'm still seeing this in gpm-1.20.1-46, but with w3m, not with aumix. 
They must be using different calls? w3m and aumix are both linked 
dynamically against libgpm.so.1. w3m is self-built (CVS version), not 
from Fedora.
Comment 9 Eido Inoue 2004-04-08 16:17:23 EDT
Check the linkage. The string "VC: " appears only once in liblow.c,
and has been commented out with a "#if 0", so I don't understand how
you can still be receiving that diagnostic msg
Comment 10 Moritz Barsnick 2004-04-17 15:31:39 EDT
I now understand how I can still be receiving messages - they're 
different messages. ;-) This may be a different bug:

I get messages only when running w3m in rxvt:

*** err [lib/liblow.c(266)]:
strncmp/isdigit/consolename failed
Oh, oh, it's an error! possibly I die!

w3m keeps running.

If I remove the offending source around line 266, w3m actually 

I'll check whether this has to do with my w3m build and post a new 
bug report.
