Overriding of text in rhgb's detailed view

Description of problem:
Some text in the detailed view of rhgb is impossible to read because
it is overridden by other text.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.When booting, click "show details"
Actual Results: Some text can't be read, because some other text is
written over it.
For example, it ends up like this:
"INIT: Entering runlevel: 5quotas [ OK ]"
This does not occur when booting without rhgb.
This is rhgb-0.16.1-1.FC3
It's not overriden. The first service started "quota"
shows up on the same line as
"INIT: Entering runlevel: 5"
There is no loss of information. This is at best a formatting
nitpick. Very low priority.
I don't agree. If you switch to detailed view quick enough, you will
see that there is some text that disappears when the "INIT: ..." line
is written (it looks like that happens twice, some text is overriden
by other text, and then the "INIT" line comes along and overrides that
Ok, I've confirmed it. The following text is all written to the same line:
Mounting local filesystems: [ OK ]
Mounting filesystem quotas: [ OK ]
Enabling swap space: [ OK ]
INIT: Entering runlevel: 5
The text that is overwritten is by no means critical, however, nothing
guarantees that other text may not be affected by this same problem.
If I'm not mistaken, rhgb uses vte to display text. IIRC there's at
least one text corruption bug fixed in fc-devel's vte. It would be
interesting to know if the problem still happens with that version of vte.
I installed vte-0.11.11-15 and the problem remains.
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
Still an issue in FC5. Bugzilla won't let me change the bug to point at FC3
Oops, I mean it won't let me change the version
Thanks for checking. I'll update the version.
clearing needinfo bit.
Fedora Core 5 is no longer maintained. Is this bug still present in Fedora 8?
We no longer support Fedora Core 5 and I am currently trying to get my open bug
count down to a more manageable state. I'm going to close this bug as WONTFIX.
If this issue is still a concern for you, would you mind trying to reproduce on
a supported version of Fedora and reopening?
