[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#357892: xfce4-terminal: new shell text forces scrollbar to bottom

Package: xfce4-terminal
Version: 0.2.4-5
Severity: minor

if text is being written to standard output by a program, xfce4 will 
scroll to the bottom (assuming that the user's intent is 
to be aware of all new output).  sometimes, i scroll up to find specific 
text while something is working, but end up forced back to the bottom 
because of the auto scrolldown.  i think xfce4-terminal's behaviour 
should be the same as gnome-terminal where even if new text is being 
output, that does not affect the scroll position.  thank you for your
