Issue with text position when resizing rxvt
 
Dear all,

When I ssh to some machine the the text gets in the wrong place after resizing.
It's like the terminal does not "know" it's been resized.
The text returns like it did at the previous size. Also no more line are created, the text "rewrites" the same line.
Is there something wrong with my bash config?
On my local machine that does not happen.
That's bothering so much, does anyone know how to avoid this?
Thank you,

Éric.

Here they are.
The first one is before I resized the terminal, the second is after having made it bigger and used the up arrow (two times) to get to the previous commend.
Thanks,

Éric.

I recorded what happen, hope that will make it more clear to you.
Please take a look at this : https://www.dropbox.com/s/bfuhf33crxhqmzz/out.ogv

Are you facing this problem for small output too?
like if you execute ls -l in any directory and it shows only 5 or 6 results. Are you facing this problem for this condition too on remote host.

If you resize the terminal using maximize button (beside close button), are you getting this problem in this condition too?
as well you resize the terminal using mouse (put it corner of the terminal and drag it), is there the problem in this case too?

Did you temper with the settings of scrolling?

make a new profile in terminal and activate it. Now changing scrolling option and "when command exits" option.
I think you have selected any wrong option there. Do not this in your default profile.

Thank you so much eklavya,

You put me on the right direction.
That happened only on remote host.
I have a script which executes ssh in a terminal.
My script was the problem.
Thanks again,

Éric.
