gnome-terminal not blanking properly
i've got woody up and running on one of my linux machines and
i'm tinkering with gnome...
gnome-terminal isn't blanking lines properly; when output makes
the screen data scroll up (or just browsing around in mutt, for
example) residual text from previous lines hangs around where it
shouldn't -- and apparently the screen refresh is too
intelligent for its own good (at least in this case it doesn't
help) since it only redraws the text it knows should be there,
and the text that shouldn't, stays.
under settings menu -> preferences -> general tab, i see
"terminal class" which is "default" and there are no other
options in the pull-down menu; on the colors tab under "color
scheme" i've tried all four (linux console, color xterm, rxvt,
custom) to no effect.
in which direction should i travel to find the clue?
I use Debian/GNU Linux version 2.2;

DEBIAN NEWBIE TIP #13 from Will Trillich <firstname.lastname@example.org>
How can you generate RANDOM EMAIL SIGNATURES? Many email clients
have this feature -- for mutt, simply declare in your ~/.muttrc
file something like
send-hook debian- "set signature='~/.signature-debian |'"
(note the quoted value ends with a 'pipe|' symbol) Then whenever
you send email to any debian-* address, it'll append the output
from your script, instead of appending a static file.
