Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 32817
nedit jitter under qa0319
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:00 EDT
This may be a problem with openmotif or XFree86 4.0.3 but it shows with nedit.
I use nedit as my primary test/program editor. While it appears to work
properly for the most part, there is annoying "jitter" where the nedit
window jitters/flutters constantly. As test is entered, there is a "flash"
of "trash" lines that go across the screen.
Oops.. looks like bero reassigned to me by accident.. ;o)
Well, it's definitely not a 4Suite bug....
The jitter/artifacts which occur with nedit seem a little better under qa0328
with XFree86-4.0.3-3 but there is still a problem -- especially when
editing/addint text -- some "artifacts" appear on the screen on line with where
editing is taking place.
It's not a bug in openmotif.
This problem does not appear on my local machine with Matrox graphic Card.
It's should be a bug in XFree.
This problem seems to have disappeared in public beta Roswell.
I am closing this as fixed in "rawhide".
Whether the problem was xfree86, openmotif versus lesstif, or whatever, the
problem has disappeared.
