Description of problem:
When I attempt to view a man page in Gnome Terminal, it appears with almost
nothing at all (blank screen) except for the ":" prompt at the bottom. When I
move the terminal window to another spot in the workspace - all the text appears
exactly as it should.
I will be attaching a couple PNGs to demonstrate the "before" and "after".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a new terminal window.
2. Type "man bash"
Actual Results: After a moment, you should see the ":" prompt appear in the
bottom left corner. However, nothing else appears.
Expected Results: You should see the help information for bash.
gnome-terminal is up2date (version is 2.0.1-3)

Show example of man before moving terminal

Showing man after terminal has been moved
During the capturing of these images, I also noticed that if gnome-terminal
loses focus it refreshes the text properly.
output of "rpm -q vte"?
$ rpm -q vte
Now that Havoc's pointed out the difference between gnome-terminal and vte to
me... this bug is duplicate of Bug 73218. Is the rawhide version not ready to
get put into up2date?
