Description of problem:
The frames or panels of an application (e.g. mc) started in kds
konsole become meesy using navigation keys (i.e. moving the highlight
between rows). It is true for application using full screen mode (mc,
crisp , etc.) I ecloses an X window dump of a mc panel
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.start konsole in kde (Terminal)
2. in Konsole start mc
3. move up and down arrow in a directory
Actual Results: the symmetrical structure is spoiled, and the lines
are displayed wrongly
Expected Results: keeping the original structure
It was fine up to FC2Test3 and no problem in Gnome

X window dump
Is mc linked with ncurses? (I don't believe so).
i don't see this problem in FC2. it works for me here. Could you please
try to configure your font setting in konsole.
mc just uses slang lib.
I used the default font setting of konsole. Also, it appers not only
on the case of mc, but in the case of e.g. crisp console mode (cr).
They both use 'frames' around text and these frames are spoilt after
some pgup-pgdown together. I can attach xwd from other application if
