How I triggered it:
Opened a gnome-terminal
 rpm -Va &> somefile
Opened another gnome terminal

Had default window settings so focus did not transfer when I
began typing in other window... did a couple of ^U to try
and clear text. Worked in other terminal for a short while
and noticed nothing was happening in first terminal.
Switched focus to first terminal and tried a ^S^Q combo to
see if I had locked up earlier. Bingo gnome reports that
gnome-terminal had locked up.

Can you provide some instructions for reproducing this? I can't seem
to do it using the "How I triggered it" ones.

Comment 2 Elliot Lee 1999-11-17 21:47:59 UTC
No instructions given on reproducing, so am closing.
