Description of problem:
Instead of displaying file contents, less shows a single character
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.open a file with less, or pipe a command through less
Actual Results: less displays a single character. The character depends
deterministically on the file contents, i.e. invoking less on the same file
always gives the same character. Interestingly, cat-ing the file to a pipe to
less gives the same character as well.
Expected Results: less displays a screenful of the file contents or the
beginning of the output of the command piped to it.

I currently have this line in my .bashrc as a workaround.
charlesrazzell: Please check if updating to the version of vte in Raw Hide fixes
this or not, as I'm fairly certain that this bug is already fixed.
vte-0.8.13-1 fixes this bug for me.
Today's (9/3/02) up2date fixed the problem for me.
