Description Dmitry Butskoy 2004-12-22 12:00:46 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
  When someone scrolls a file typing arrow-down in wrapped mode, and a
long (should-be-wrapped) line appears, the bottom F/keys are garbled.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start to view any file with long lines (more than 80 ...). The file
must have such long lines on the NEXT "screen" pages (not the FIRST
only). The good example is /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions from the Fedora
Core 3 .
2. Scroll down this file by arrow-down ONLY (NOT Page-down etc.)

Actual Results:    Be patient, and you will see the garbling...

Additional info:

  This issue already is missing in rawhide versions, IMHO, it was
fixed sometimes in upstream. Therefore, the solution is just to update
MC once more :-)

 My users stumble by this bug several times at hour... I am already
enough courageous to set "high" severity level for it.

Pushy fellow aren't you?

Please read
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/bug_status.cgi#severity to learn
about the proper use of the Severity keyword.
Comment 3 Dmitry Butskoy 2004-12-28 06:40:24 EST
  Yes, "high" priority, not severity...
Comment 4 Dmitry Butskoy 2004-12-28 06:42:33 EST
  ...but I cannot set "high" priority :-( . But the priority is
"high", anyway...
Comment 5 Leonard den Ottolander 2004-12-28 16:35:40 EST
Priority is essentialy a tag for the developer. And you should
remember that your personal priorities are not necessarily identical
with those of the developer(s) or the distribution.

All you accomplish by setting these options to *your* liking is make
people _less_ interested in your opinions... So consider how you can
achieve your goal most easily.

  mc-4.6.1a-0.3 from rawhide, compiled under fc3, works OK.
Additionally, this rawhide version of mc has no "mcview shows always
100%' bug
Comment 7 Jindrich Novy 2005-02-02 09:00:41 EST
Hello Dmitry,

I released mc-4.6.1-0.12.FC3 update which is actually mc-4.6.1-pre3
with UTF-8 fixes, these issues should be successfully solved also for
FC3 after the update.
