Description Neo 2005-05-12 19:56:03 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
The following command messes up gnome terminal:
dialog --calendar "select a date" 4 40|more

The screen displays very strange characters after the above command completes. If it does not mess up the display, then ENTER key does not work (not totally, it does not do \r\n and I can still run commands).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a gnome terminal.
2. Run `dialog --calendar "select a date" 4 40|more`.
3. Hit ENTER.
4. Try other normal commands (e.g., ls).

Actual Results:  Most probably, the screen is messed up (filled by strange characters). And ENTER key does not function as it should; pressing ENTER does not produce \r\n sequence any more.

Expected Results:  None of the above.

Additional info:

I tested it with xterm, it seems xterm is less buggy, since only ENTNER key loses effect.

This looks like it's actually a bug in vte, the rendering widget used by
gnome-terminal.  I'm going to reassign the bug to that component.

Comment 2 Warren Togami 2005-05-14 04:41:15 UTC
This test looks equally messed up on FC4 gnome-terminal, konsole and xterm to
me.  If you want it fixed in gnome-terminal please report it upstream to GNOME
Bugzilla against the vte component.  This is not something that we have time to
fix ourselves.
