Thank you for reporting this bug to Ubuntu.  We are sorry that we do not
always have the capacity to look at all reported bugs in a timely

A fourteen year old bug report which details an upgrade between releases
which were both 'end of life' over twelve years ago is not useful in
2023 so I'm closing this as 'Invalid'.

Please *do* report any problems that you might see when upgrading
currently supported Ubuntu releases.

  gvim corrupts text after Jaunty -> karmic upgrade

Status in vim package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: vim

  The installed gvim application was running fine under Jaunty (on an
  IBM T30). Now, having upgraded to Karmic (but booted into 2.6.28-14 -
  owing to consistent failure to boot to 2.6.31-14 documented
  elsewhere), the application opens showing an initial screen on which
  all text is corrupted and wholly unreadable. On entering insert mode,
  all text entered text is displayed in corrupt fashion. If the gvim
  window is minimised and then subsequently recovered, any text is
  rendered readable ... any new text inserted is unreadable until such
  time as the window undergoes another minimise/maximise cycle.

  The fault isn't, AFAICT, related to the font selected in the window -
  the same behaviour is exhibited irrespective of the selected font.

  The attached screen shot shows the state of the app after some text
  had been entered, a minimise/maximise cycle undergone, followed by
  further text entry.
