cating /etc/localtime (Europe/Budapest, Ubuntu Utopic beta) hangs vte.
It actually understands shell commands and executes them, but the terminal contents are never updated again. Blindly typing a "reset" command, or pressing vteapp's reset button doesn't recover it either.
Oops, sorry, mainstream 0.38 is not buggy.
One of my pending patches (for bugs 732586, 731205, 730154, 708195 or 720821) causes the problem.
Let me keep this bug open as a reminder that further investigation is required in one of those bugs.
Old versions are also affected. The one from Ubuntu 12.04 for example.
Strange, I can't reproduce with those vte versions (incl. 0.32.1 as in Ubuntu 12.04).
The bug is introduced in my vte by the patch to bug 730154.
Happens with Google's modified version of Ubuntu 12.04 for me. gnome-terminal version is 220.127.116.11.
We should make g-t's about dialog show vte version. Not sure which version that is, but I have:
sounds like 0.32.1.
