Description John Newbigin 2007-07-11 05:13:58 UTC
Description of problem:
Sometimes, the last line in the terminal is not shown. This is normally the
shell prompt after a command has run but does not have to be.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run gnome-terminal
2. ssh to another linux box
3. run seq 10000
4. look for the prompt
5. if it is not there, go back to step 3

Although it can happen localy, I found it easier to reproduce when connected to
a remote machine.  For some reason, the output of a remote seq command is faster
than when locally run.
Actual results:
About 1 in 10 times, the prompt is not shown.

Expected results:
The prompt should always be displayed.

Additional info:
Scrolling up and down does not force the line to be drawn.
Resizing the window does.

For what is it worth, I tried the vte patch from bug #219617 but that did not
help with this problem.
