Description of problem:
When I run man in a gnome-terminal, I get some number of completely blank pages
except for the : character to control the pager.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.man fgets


Actual Results:  Nothing appears except a colon

Expected Results:  A man page is displayed

Additional info:

Works fine on console and in xterm.
Going forward a page and then backing up also gets the text to appear.

Please try latest vte from rawhide (0.8.15 or so is what we're up to)

Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2002-09-05 19:19:00 UTC
This should be fixed in 0.8.9 and later.
