i've found some snags in gnome-terminal (18.104.22.168 under woody)
that haven't interfered with my windo~1 PuTTY experiences...
- some items are not blanked properly; that is, when new text at
the bottom scrolls text off the top, artifacts appear to remain
that should have scrolled off. sometimes refreshing (^L in vi)
makes it better, sometimes not. editing can get quite hairy
with this snag.
- my prompt includes escape sequences to hilite user@host:path
and gnome-terminal gets all confused on cursor positioning,
particularly when using word-delete to edit the command line.
(i'd expect the linux console tohave similar conniptions, but
i'm considering going back to xterm or rxvt...
I use Debian/GNU Linux version 3.0;

Looking to AUTOMATE APT-GET UPGRADES? Don't! Sooner or later
there will be configuration questions, or dependency conflicts!
You can DOWNLOAD (and not actually install) the latest and
greatest automatically, though, with a crontab command such as
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade --download-only
This updates and downloads in /var/cache/apt/archives, but does
not install packages until requested manually. Later, when
it's convenient, do the actual install, by hand:
See "man apt-get" and "man crontab".
