Some characters not cleared

Randomly some characters are not cleared when switching mailboxes or updating flags/tags. Sometimes the middle of my screen might look something like:

           N   g                                         
                                                         
                                                         
           K     w    r    (                   ]         
                                                         
                                                         
                                                         
           O   f   d                                     
                                                         
                    (      r                             

and the characters are only cleared if some other character replaces them.

what's your terminal emulator?

shell?

value of $TERM?

~acksld 3 months ago*

I'm using:

kitty 0.19.3

zsh 5.8

linux 5.11.1-arch1-1

~labrat 3 months ago

Value of $TERM? That's not the kernel version, I want to know the value of the environment variable.

Also kitty is very very special, the dev doesn't give a damn about how terminals work everywhere else and uses his own escape sequences and stuff.

In other words, try with a different terminal emulator.

~acksld 3 months ago

TERM=xterm-kitty

I just tried with xterm (TERM=xterm) and seeing the same issue

~acksld 3 months ago

Also I just tried without any zsh config to see if it was due to some settings or extensions but seeing the same issue even then

~labrat 3 months ago

You're barking up the wrong tree... the squirrel is on your terminal emulator.

~labrat 3 months ago

try with a normal one like xterm, termite, alacrity etc

~acksld 3 months ago

Okay... so at least kitty and xterm has this squirrel then

~labrat 3 months ago

can you easily reproduce the issue?

If so please tell me how, simply switching folders?

~acksld 3 months ago

Yep, for example simply starting aerc in xterm and switching folders. In particular if I go from a folder with a lot of emails (terminal mostly full with characters) to a folder with none (terminal should be mostly empty but there are some random leftover characters).

~labrat 3 months ago

Doesn't happen for me with xterm

~acksld 3 months ago

Hmm strange. Any ideas what I might try more to figure out why this is happening?

~labrat 3 months ago

no sorry... you'll habe to debug on your own.

~acksld 3 months ago

Actually, I just realised that this seems to only happen if the email subject has a unicode character, then some of the following characters (in particular those following a blank space) are not cleared properly.

~acksld 3 months ago

~labrat are you able to reproduce with unicode characters? Such as ☕

~labrat 3 months ago

I'm not able to reproduce it no. Even with a shitload of emojies. And now my inbox looks like crap 🙃

~acksld 3 months ago

Alright, thanks for trying! Sorry about your inbox haha :P
