Description schulz 1999-11-19 12:35:27 EST
The less seems to "remember" its contents from the previous runs when
used in a gnome-terminal. This effect can simply be reproduced by

echo 1 | less      (press q)
echo 2 | less      (press q)
echo 3 | less

In a regular xterm, this does not happen. Don't know who of the two
is responsible for that behaviour. Yours,

	Martin Schulz

Seems to be a gnome-terminal bug.
Works on ttys, in xterm, konsole and kvt.

I can't reproduce this problem with latest CVS GNOME, and Matt stopped
complaining about it a while ago, so I am assuming it is fixed in the upcoming
GNOME errata (stay tuned for these).

If you want a fix "now" you can get the October GNOME packages via
