Description of problem:
I create a text file, foo. The text file contains the lines "teh
trukey jmpus oevr teh cwo" in different forms. I run the command:
% ispell foo
At first, everything is right and proper, but after completing a check
of the first line or so, text redraws over itself or appears in odd
locations, making it impossible to perform the check with any context.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a text file that contains some mispelled words.
2. Start gnome terminal and check the file using ispell.
3. Complete checking more than one line of the file.
Actual Results: After checking the first line or so, things didn't
Expected Results: There should not be any screen corruption.
This might be a problem with gnome-terminal and/or vte? It doesn't
happen in an xterm or on console.
This is a known gnome-terminal xterm-emulation bug. (see bug 134300)
Setting TERM=gnome is a temporary workaround.
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.
