Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 247732
last line of output not shown
Last modified: 2015-03-03 17:31:23 EST
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):
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.
About 1 in 10 times, the prompt is not shown.
The prompt should always be displayed.
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.
