Description Sitsofe Wheeler 2004-07-08 10:25:45 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.6)

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):

How reproducible:

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
the bottom

Actual Results:
Some lines are of text have only their bottom halves drawn

Expected Results:
Lines of text to always be fully formed

Additional info:
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.
