Description abs 1999-11-23 04:41:42 UTC
UPgraded 6.0 to 6.1 on Pentium.

I find that when dragging an rxvt scroll bar to bottom that it
bounces back to top; so, I can't find my cursor, which is off-

This is really painful to use; one needs to very carefully
position the scroll bar just above the bottom of its range.

Get newer rxvt rpm. I got 2.7.1 and it is OK (and with much nicer scrollbar).


Comment 2 Preston Brown 2000-01-14 02:52:59 UTC
the scrollbar behaviour won't change for 6.2, but probably will for 7.0.  In the
meantime, try using konsole (KDE terminal) or gnome-terminal.
