Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 70658
vte no longer accepts input after resizing
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:03 EDT
I've got a vte terminal embedded in a GtkPaned (part of the anjuta2 project).
After resizing the terminal by dragging the GtkPaned, the vte widget no longer
accepts any keyboard input. It just sits there and doesn't respond to anything:
doesn't display any of the characters i'm typing, doesn't respond to "reset",
"clear" or "exit".
Resizing works fine in gnome-terminal.
Filing this @ bugzilla.redhat.com because of limbo.
It now works with vte-0.7.0 from rawhide.
There's still some garbage text which doesn't get cleared when you make the vte
widget smaller (the space below the last line in the vte widget which is smaller
than the height of a line doesn't get cleared).
The hints on the widget shouldn't let you resize it to a non-integral multiple
of the character cell size. The widget didn't set this geometry hint in the
past, but it should be fixed around 0.7.3 or so. Closing.
