Description Bastien Nocera 2006-12-14 09:35:49 EST
1. Open a terminal using gnome-terminal
2. Open a second tab in the terminal
3. Maximise the window
4. Do a "cat /var/log/messages*" (or cat some other big ASCII files)
5. Scroll up and down rapidly

You can see redraw artifacts on some of the lines. Stop scrolling while those
artifacts exist.

Ok with me.  Bastien, do you prefer building yourself or should I?
