Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 483609
running 'reset' shrinks the terminal window
Last modified: 2009-03-29 23:44:31 EDT
Description of problem:
When I open a terminal window, and use the 'reset' command at the command-line, the terminal windows shrinks.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run 'resize' to check the terminal dimensions.
2. Run 'reset' to reset and clear the scrollback buffer.
3. Run 'resize' again.
The second run will show a smaller number (in my case, one column and one row are lost).
Terminal stays the same size.
In case any of this affects it, I'm using the 'miscfixed' bitmap font (10x20 pixels), and metacity as the window manager. This doesn't happen in the 'vte' test program (from vte-devel-0.19.4-3.fc11).
