Package: xfce4-terminal
Version: 0.2.8-5
Followup-For: Bug #445323

Hi, I thought the following might help you track down this bug.

I made a mirror of 'testing' on 5 May 2008. I installed the nVidia
driver from NVIDIA-Linux-x86-169.12-pkg1.run. I did *not* have the
xfce-terminal problem discussed here.  (I realise that the original
bug report was sent *before* I did this installation, but I definitely
did not have this problem.)

Two weeks later I made a new mirror of 'testing' and upgraded my
system. I did *not* change the nVidia driver. Since then I have
the problem.

(For info, I never resize my terminal windows, they are always
max-ed, but when I switch from a different virtual desktop back to
the one running xfce-terminal there is a good 1 second delay in
redrawing the terminal. It seems to make no difference if the screen
is empty or full of coloured text.)

I applied the composite fix in /etc/X11/xorg.conf and this fixed
the problem.

Below's the output of:

	 dpkg -l | egrep -i 'xorg|term|vte|xfce' | awk '{ print $2 " " $3 }' | sort

I can't go back in time and run that before I did the upgrade :-) but
I do have backups of /var/lib/dpkg/status, from before the upgrade, so,
if it helps, let me know if you want them.
