Description of problem:
I have the `scroll on output' option disabled, but `scroll on
keystroke' enable. This used to enable me to scroll back and look
closely at something already scrolled out of the terminal, while new
output was generated. It seems like, as of the past few days, the
unchecking of `scroll on output' is no longer honored, and the
terminal always scrolls to the end when new output is produced.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Disable `scroll on output' in Right click -> Edit current Profile ->
2.Run a command that slowly produces a lot of output (say, for n in
`seq 100`; do echo $n; usleep 100000; done
3.When the `1' scrolls off the screen, use shift pageup to scroll up
Actual Results: It will scroll back to the end as new output is produced.
Expected Results: Earlier versions honored this option, and it would
be nice if it could be restored.
Ray has fixed this one - confirmed fixed with vte-0.11.11-5
