Getting this with 1.91 on Arch, it likes to happen during package
updates for some reason.

I found a hacky workaround - add this to your $PS1:


It'll fix it as soon as you get to a prompt.

Given how randomly it happens, I believe there is a real bug in
Terminator; but if you want to force the broken state, just open 'mc'
and run 'pkill mc' from another terminal, your scrolling will be broken.

A way to debug this kind of thing is to run e.g 'mc > trace.txt'. Then
type 'exit', hit return, and mc will quit. You will get all the escape
sequences from mc in trace.txt to inspect.

  Scrolling randomly stops working

Status in bash package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Usually, scrolling in the terminal window works as expected, which is like 
  - the terminal window has a scrollbar
  - Assuming there are more lines (of commands you have typed + their output) 
than fit in the window, you can scroll up and down both by dragging the 
scrollbar and by using the mouse wheel

  However, at random times, the Terminal starts behaving like this:
  1 - the scrollbar's "handle" is as high as the whole scrollbar, as if the 
existing lines didn't exceed the height of the window, even if that is not the 
  2 - you can't scroll by dragging the scrollbar (which is consistent with 1)
  3 - the scrollwheel behaves like the up and down arrow keys, that is, it 
scans through previously typed commands in your history.

  I have no idea what triggers the nonsense behavior. It seems to start 
happening randomly.
