Description David Nielsen 2006-12-01 23:10:21 UTC
Description of problem:
When you open a new tab they don't display updates untill you switch away from
them and then back. The original instance is always working perfectly, only
subiquently opened tabs are affected.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open new tab
2. type stuff and notice how nothing happens
3. switch to the another tab then switch back and notice how your text now is

AFAICS this does not happen right away.  In the first terminal window
you can usually open one additional tab and it will behave normally.
After opening the next one there is a pretty good chance that one
will stare at a blank window.  After a long while a prompt may appear
but nothing is echoed while you type.  That is practically certain
in the next tab to be opened.

In the second terminal window already the first added tab will behave
like described in the report with a practical certainity.

I tried to look with 'strace' and SysRq if there is anything unusual
with a bash behaviour in those new tabs and if there is then I missed

I can confirm this on x86_64

Quite annoying.

This doesn't happen on i386.  Downgrading vte and gnome-terminal to the versions
from FC6 doesn't help.

Confirming on gnome-terminal-2.16.1-1.fc7 x86_64 (rawhide)

This bug made me forget about term tabs altogether - they're impossible to use now

Comment 6 Deji Akingunola 2007-01-24 07:55:32 UTC
This seems to have been fixed with gnome-terminal-2.17.90-1.fc7 and vte-0.15.2-1.fc7

Comment 7 Saikat Guha 2007-01-24 09:06:10 UTC
