Description of problem:
Scrolling downwards in a maximised gnome-terminal somtimes causes the
top halves of lines not to be drawn.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gnome-termimal
2. Switch res to 640x480 (xrandr -s "640x480")
3. Maximise the gnome-terminal window
4. type dmesg<return>
5. Move the scrollbar to the top of the gnome-terminal
6. Move the scrollbar down quickly but do not let the scrollbar reach
Some lines are of text have only their bottom halves drawn
Lines of text to always be fully formed
Corruption appears to only occur when dragging the scrollbar in a
downward direction. Corruption can also when using a mousewheel to
scroll and shift-pagedown (although it is rarer).
Highlighting a single letter on a corrupted line causes ALL corrupted
lines to be redrawn properly. Parts of a corrupted line that are
obscured by another window are redrawn properly once exposed. This
problem can afflict any maximised gnome-terminal but is particularly
apparent for me at 640x480.
Could well be a dup of / related to bug 108194 although the
screenshots in that bug do not looks similar to the corruption I see.

And it's already been reported to redhat bugzilla too - bug 104768 .
Sorry about that - I only searched for bugs in gnome-terminal... Next
time I'll do a search by a single word in the description on all
