Description Joe Orton 2002-09-18 10:32:02 EDT
Using: gnome-terminal-2.0.1-5 and vte-0.8.19-1

I can fairly reproducibly make gnome-terminal crash by doing:

1. start mutt in a gnome-terminal
2. change to a folder with many messages in, which takes 10+ seconds to load
3. resize the gnome-terminal window a few times whilst mutt continues to display 
its "Reading /home/jorton/mail/<folder> ... x y%" messages every 1000 messages.

Here's the backtrace:

This patch I think shows what is actually going on - cursor escaping off display
top. Im not sure it is the right actual fix ultimately
