Description of problem:
when using the command:
nothing is displayed on the screen. if the down arrow is hit, nothing shows up
until the up arrow is hit. the same happens with pagedown; nothing will happen
until pageup is hit. for example, if you want to scroll down a page, you'd have to:
after that, you'll finally see the expected text. i tried these commands using
xterm and they work fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnome-terminal-2.0.1-3
Steps to Reproduce:
1. less a file or man a command
2. view the results
Actual Results: nothing is displayed and scrolling acts strange
Expected Results: buffer scrolling should work like in old versions of
gnome-terminal or other terminal emulators like xterm.
This should be fixed with the final vte

Part of what is described here is normal less behavior in any terminal. The
rest has since been fixed a long time ago.
