Comment 1 Behdad Esfahbod 2008-08-19 15:46:31 EDT
This is fixed upstream.  Will build as soon as the build system is back.
There's a dup of it also.
Comment 2 CAI Qian 2008-08-27 22:30:06 EDT
I tried the latest gnome-terminal-2.23.6-2.fc10.x86_64, but found the problem has not been fixed. Reopen it for now. Feel free to close it, if the new package with the fix has been built.
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2008-08-27 23:25:10 EDT
The fix is in vte.
Comment 4 CAI Qian 2008-08-27 23:34:37 EDT
Confirmed it has been fixed by vte-0.17.2-1.fc10.x86_64.rpm. Thanks!
