Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 51802
window size change handling bug
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:35:54 EDT
Description of Problem:
When enlarging a terminal running pine, some parts of the screen go blank
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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.
The top half or so of the on-screen part of the message becomes blank.
It shouldn't, of course. ;-)
(This bug was reported to me, and I have seen it demonstrated. Just
passing it on..)
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.
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
pine is not included in RHEL3 or FC anymore. I close it as "WONTFIX"
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
