Description Pete Zaitcev 2002-10-14 15:10:59 EDT
Description of Problem:
Scrollback region is not saved when vt100 scroll region is in effect
in RH8.0, but it was saved in RH7.3.

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

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run an application which sets a scroll region touching topmost line,
   such as sirc/ssfe.
2. Hit <Shift><PgUp> to examine the scrollback area, observe that the
   scroll content was not saved.

Actual Results:

Saved scroll region is not updated.

Expected Results:

Saved scroll region updated as in RHL 7.3.

Additional Information:

Note that scroll saving under screen never worked, so don't try
to "fix" that.

Are you referring to a scrolling region (cs) or the alternate screen buffer? 
The alternate screen buffer should have no scrollback.

It's "cs" capability of termcap, and it worked before, and it works in xterm.
Comment 4 Nalin Dahyabhai 2003-01-14 01:38:54 EST
Should be fixed in 0.10.10 and later.
Comment 5 Pete Zaitcev 2003-01-14 02:44:31 EST
I went to porkchop, but "slocate vte-0.10.10" yields no result.
I'll retry later, I guess...

Fixed in Phoebe2 (vte-0.10.10-1)
