No, thats wrong. The reason is just another one, even more simple:

The gv RPM from OpenSuse installs a file /usr/share/X11/app-defaults/GV, which contains e. g. settings for a bigger font. These settings are just incompatible with gv 3.6.x.

Solution: Just uninstall the gv RPM from OpenSuse.

With /usr/share/X11/app-defaults/GV from OpenSuse installed, you can examine this clobbering with other distributions, too.

Confirmation that the bug is not in gv
but in the linux libraries:
gv-3.5.8 as supplied in the suse distribution
works fine.
when re-compiled from sources, the bug is there.

the bug does not exist for version 3.6.2
under solaris-9 for SUN/ultrasparc
when built with the same source files
that show it on linux/x86_64.

Maybe the bug is somewhere in the linux libraries
and not in gv.

The same bug occurs in the file-list of the <<open-file>> menu.

Sun 26 Nov 2006 05:45:33 PM UTC, original submission:  

gv 3.6.2
when the mouse cursor enters the page-scrolling list
on the left of the screen, the page-number over which
it passes is highlighted, but re-drawn a little bit above its place. this effect is cumulative: as the cursor moves,
the offset increases, so the list becomes unreadable. This is specially obvious when the cursor moves in the list from bottom to top.

the bug already existed in version 3.6.1

linux Suse/Novell 10.1, amd64 (x86_64)
