Bug#235046: uxterm: fails to display characters
Recently, I have begun using uxterm exclusively, rather than simple
xterm. I have not made any configuration changes to locales nor uxterm
recently. I experience this problem on at least four (4) different
systems, some running kernel 2.4.24 and others 2.6.2.
My best example is:
The first `Options' section does *NOT* display the leading `-' and `--'
characters. The second `OPTIONS' section displays leading `-' and `--'
as expected. As I write this, I have five (5) uxterms open on this
system, four (4) exhibit this problem, and one (1) displays this example
manpage as expected.
To be honest, so far, I have only experienced this problem in manpages,
and I do not have evidence of other occurences.
How can I facilitate troubleshooting this bug?
