Description Jim Nance 2001-05-03 01:55:58 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.4 i586)

When using the attached .Xdefaults file, my xterms are green with black
backgrounds.  There is a scroll bar on the left side and it is green. 
There is nothing that seperates the scroll bar from the text area of the
xterm.  If vi rings its visual bell, a virticle green line, one pixel wide
appears between the scroll bar and the text area.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install the .Xdefaults file
2.Start an xterm
3.Start vim w/o a file name, hit the J key.  This should cause the visual
bell to ring. 
4.Notice that the appearance of the xterm has changed

Actual Results:  A line appears to seperate the scroll bar from the text

Expected Results:  The line should either always be there or never be
there.  It should not appear after
the screen flashes.

This is not reproducible with vim 5.8-5 and XFree86-4.1.0-0.8.6 from Rawhide, 
so it will be fixed in our next release.

I got the XFree86 rpms, extracted the xterm binary and the shared libs and tried
it out.  I still get the problem.  Were you able to reproduce this problem with
any version of X?
