Description Tim Waugh 2001-08-15 08:50:15 EDT
Description of Problem:
When enlarging a terminal running pine, some parts of the screen go blank 
that shouldn't.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open an 80x24 terminal.
2. Start pine in it.
3. Have someone send you a lengthy message (100 lines or so). ;-)
4. View the message, and scroll down about half way.
5. Highten the terminal to about 70-80 lines.

Actual Results:
The top half or so of the on-screen part of the message becomes blank.

Expected Results:
It shouldn't, of course. ;-)

Additional Information:
(This bug was reported to me, and I have seen it demonstrated.  Just 
passing it on..)
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2001-08-15 09:05:00 EDT
Define 'terminal'.  Any terminal, gnome-term, konsole, xterm, etc..
I don't see this in PINE, however I do see this behaviour in konsole
for any apps that display a lot of text, including just doing
a "dir" on devserv.  Nothing has changed in PINE, so I'm betting
that it is a bug in whatever term software you're using.

I'm betting it is konsole.  Am I close?  ;o)

Spot on.  Reassining.
Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2001-08-15 09:10:04 EDT
THis occurs when doing any sort of output that causes scrolling to occur,
a good way to reproduce, is to run mozilla with strace:

strace -f mozilla

Comment 4 Ngo Than 2004-09-20 09:23:58 EDT
pine is not included in RHEL3 or FC anymore. I close it as "WONTFIX"
Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2004-09-20 16:51:11 EDT
I think it was pretty clear from the above, that this problem is
NOT restricted to pine.  Re-read the entire bug report to see that
it occurs with other software, including stuff that _IS_ included
with RHEL3.
