Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 439192
konsole displays junk when resizing window
Last modified: 2015-07-13 13:36:10 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm running mc (4.6.1a-35.el5, mc-4.6.2-3.pre1.el5) and when resizing window I
see junk in the terminal breaking the formatting (see attached screenshot).
I've isolated this to be a konsole problem as neither gnome-terminal nor xterm
exhibit this issue. Having the gdm service running does not affect the results.
- open new konsole
- start mc
- grab the corner and try resizing the window a couple of times, or
just enlarge it slowly so mc redraws a couple of times
The corruption usually appears in 3-5 redraws.
I'm running the latest of RHEL 5.2 (prerelease) on i386, fully updated to tree
mc-4.6.1a-35.el5, mc-4.6.2-3.pre1.el5 (scratch build)

Version 5.4 out and still no fix...
