[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#684445: xfce4-terminal: unreliable refresh when scrolling in mosh

Package: xfce4-terminal
Version: 0.6.3-1
Followup-For: Bug #684445

This bug is probably a duplicate of #737305

It doesn't just occur in xfce4-terminal, but also in other libvte9
based terminals. I tested roxterm-gtk2, evilvte, lxterminal,
termit, vala-terminal and they were all showing the same flawed

Note that tilda, even though it also uses libvte9, doesn't seem to
exhibit the problem. It might be related to it being special in
that it doesn't have a proper window.

Also note that sakura does not use libvte9 (it uses libvte-2.90-9)
and thus, along with gnome-terminal and roxterm-gtk3, isn't
affected, as that variant of libvte has already had the relevant
patches applied.

And the bug is not restricted to using mosh, but it happens much
more rarely when not using it.
