Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 75902
Scroll region is not reset on "resize(1)"
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:04 EDT
Description of Problem:
Traditionally, resize(1) reset the scroll region, but now it doesn't.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start ssh session somewhere
2. start screen on the remote host
2. enter vim
3. abort the ssh session
4. ensure that scrolling is confined to the region by hitting 'Enter'.
the vim information line should remain on the screen and the
shell prompt should appear above it.
5. run resize
scrolling is not restored
Full screen scrolling restored
This is a regression from RH7.3.
Coincidently, in old gnome-terminal and xterm, reset(1) did not recover
the full-screen scroll, but now it does. I'd be happy to use that,
except that it also erases the screen, which is pretty annoying.
(please file terminal emulation bugs against vte, gnome-terminal is just the
menus and prefs dialog and other shell containing the terminal emulator.)
Fixing for 0.9.2. Thanks!
Confirmed fixed in vte-0.10.10-1.
