Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 481728
Cursor position not updated correctly
Last modified: 2009-12-18 02:42:27 EST
Description of problem:
When moving the cursor around a document, intermediate cursor positions are not erased and it's very hard to tell exactly where the cursor is. This happens both when moving with the arrow keys or with other shortcuts (e.g. forwards/backwards by word).
The screenshot gives an idea of what's happening.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Screenshot showing cursor problem
I have seen this before and yet I am not able to reproduce this anymore.
I have tried F-10 and the same version you noted above (on a i686) and also 1.6.1 and 1.6.2svn on rawhide with no success in getting the same problem.
Do you have a precise recipe that forces the bad redraws?
The 1.6.2 will be out soon, with lots of bug fixes, in any case. :-)
No precise recipe, I'm afraid. I did find yesterday that clicking with the mouse made the phantom cursor images disappear, but I can't recreate the problem today.
If the problem doesn't reappear soon I'll close the bug.

Another screenshot of corruption
I have the same problem, however I got it everywhere. Every textbox i see has this problem.
- when typing in gnome-terminal, text is garbled. When window is dragged normal text is restored.
- when typing in firefox text appears normal, when i go back (ctrl+left) the cursor disappears and sometimes a line remains. When I reach the part of the text i want to edit it's quite hard to see my insert location
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '10'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
