Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 18326
rxvt (shift + page (up|down) doesn't work right
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:28:58 EDT
Just noticed that when I'm in X and using rxvt it hangs if I backscroll
"too much". It is quite random where it hangs but it's rather annoying.
After that I have to press enter once and suddenly (shift + page (up|down))
works again. I'm too lazy to use mouse for backscrolling. ;)
I'm quite sure that the problem is with rxvt because xterm and "normal"
console are working ok.
with best regards,
today 05 Oct.. I tested the newest rxvt-development version and it didn't have
the same bug.
I'd like to confirm this. First I thought that -- in comparison with RH 6.2 --
it would only be the case when I have ``rxvt*scrollTtyOutput: false'' enabled
because disabling that seemed to work for some time. However, I then suddenly
discovered more annoying shift+page up/down lockups. The rxvt shipped with RH
7.0 is bad.
Well, meanwhile I'm running KDE 2.0.1 from Rawhide (besides the usual rh70
updates), and the problem is gone. :-O
i'm using rxvt-2.7.5-15 on a plain, pure, just installed version of rh7.1. when
ever you hit shift-key+ to flip fonts, rxvt seg faults. i think it is because
some of the default fonts are not either installed correct or properly set in
some xdefaults for or something. my personal .Xdefaults has no Xterm or Rxvt
Here is the trace of the core file if it helps at all (not many valid symbols,

That would be a completely different bug (which I can't reproduce btw) and a
different release of Red Hat Linux. Hence I suggest you submit a separate bug
report. (What do you mean with "shift-key+"?)
Whoever has opened the original bug report, the problem is not present in Red
Hat Linux 7.1. Else, I stick to my comment from 2000-12-23 11:28:31.
