Description of problem:
First of all, i've been discussing this in #fedora on freenode.net and someone has suggested it is a dnotify bug which has been fixed in the .14 kernel. however I am currently running the .14 kernel as witnessed below.
[root@positive-outlook james]# uname -r
When the cursor should wrap onto a new line as there is no space left on the current line, it does not wrap onto a new line but overwrites the current line or any of the ones preceding it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This most commonly happens when it has been running for long periods and when i have more tabs open, so one presumes that leaving it going for extended periods and using it and having multiple tabs open will help to replicate.
Actual Results: the cursor overwrote the beginning of the current line or any random character above it
Expected Results: the cursor should have started writing on a new line
I am willing to hold a VNC session if it is believed this will help someone to understand why it's happening.
I am having the same problem with kernel 2.6.14-1.1653_FC4 and gnome-terminal
