Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 75900
Scrollback not saved if region is set
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:04 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):
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.
Saved scroll region is not updated.
Saved scroll region updated as in RHL 7.3.
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.

ssfe.c (standalone part of sirc)
It's "cs" capability of termcap, and it worked before, and it works in xterm.
Should be fixed in 0.10.10 and later.
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)
