Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 59724
major issues with rxvt in RHL 7.2
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:40:19 EDT
I am having a variety of different issues in rxvt. Before RHL 7.2, I've never
seen any of these problems before, and I've used rxvt for 4-5 years. Perhaps
it's due to the fact you shipped a development version.
1) On terminals, after a while, I get bold dashes along the left side. I will
attach a screep cap showing them. This is an abnormally wide rxvt, but I get it
on 80x24 terminals as well, in the default font. ^L to refresh gets rid of the
glitch. It starts out with just one 'dash' at the bottom-right. Then they
multiply as the terminal scrolls, until it's on every line along the right.
2) graphical glitches when running mutt inside rxvt. Probably due to a bad
termcap or terminfo entry. I will attach a screen cap of this as well. The
"Attachments" and "Mutt: Compose" white bar is supposed to extend the whole
width of the terminal.
3) I can't paste characters in the range of 128-255 into rxvt from other
applications. If I start up an xterm, the paste works fine.
4) I can't paste into rxvt from 'xpdf' *at all*. xterm recieves the paste fine.
This was with a fully up2date box. 2, 3, and 4 were fully reproducable over the
last months. 1 seems to happen at completely random times. It happens in my
syslog and IRC terminals mostly, but in others as well. Likely in those two as
they scroll more then the "normal" usage terminals.
I removed the rxvt package that Red Hat installed, and compiled my own copy with
the sources off of rxvt.org, version 2.6.4 (latest stable). All four problems
