vala-terminal colors change sometimes

Reported by: zub Owned by: ainulindale
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: SHR Image Version: SHR-unstable
Keywords: vala-terminal color Cc:


Sometimes vala-terminal changes colors. The wrong colour is persistent - starting e.g. mc still displays it in wrong colours. The actual colors seem to vary in different occurences of bug, but all the colors displayed always have some sort of brown/amber shift.

See the attached screenshot.

This usually happens after the terminal has been running for a long time (> 6 hrs) and it's not too frequent, so it's not easily reproducible.

I started seeing the issue after the kernel was upgraded to 2.6.32. My guess is it's a kernel and/or X issue and it just manifests in vala-terminal.

Interestingly, not only the vte widget is affected, but also the toolbar and scrollbar change colour.
