           Summary: scrolling thru a man page mucks up the text
           Product: konsole
           Version: 1.2
          Platform: Compiled Sources
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: konsole-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: cjb at cs.utexas.edu

Version:           1.2 (using KDE 3.1.0 (RC5))
Installed from:    compiled sources
Compiler:          gcc version 3.2 20020903 (Red Hat Linux 8.0 3.2-7)
OS:          Linux (i686) release 2.4.18-14

when i bring up a man page in the konsole and scroll thru it, the text gets messed up.  it leaves bits and piece of the old text everywhere.  its kinda hard for me to describe, but i could send a screenshot if someone would tell me how to take a screenshotand where to send it.

i would like to note that i'm using redhat 8.0 with qt-3.1.1 with anti aliased fonts.  to get qt-3.1.1 to compile with xft support on my redhat 8.0 system, i had to do this:

1. Edit $QTDIR/config.tests/x11/xfreetype.test as follows:
      Change line 40 to read:
     without which it tries to link with "-lXft" instead of "-lXft2"
       Change line 55 to read:
            LIBXFT="-l$F -lfreetype -lfontconfig"
      without which it tries to link without the fontconfig library.
2. Run the configure script with  "-I/usr/include/Xft2 -xft" in addition 
to any other args you need.
 From there on it worked for me per the normal build instructions.

i don't know if that matters or if it messed anything up that has to do with fonts or what.

thanks for the help,
