Bug Description

Screen doesn't refresh properly when scrolling (see the attachment).

The behavior is seen on RHEL 4.8 and SLES 11, but not on RHEL 5.3. However, on RHEL5.3, scrolling is very sluggish. It seems to be a trade-off between quick movement and frequent / accurate refreshing.

Command line:

qemu-system-x86_64 -m 2048 -drive file=/scratch/images/SLES-11-GMC-x86_64.raw -net nic,vlan=0,macaddr=DE:AD:BE:EF:88:95,model=rtl8139 -net tap -vnc :40 -boot cd -monitor stdio -smp 4

From your command line, I suspect you're testing a copy of KVM. Is this reproducible with the upstream QEMU and if so, with what version (either 0.10.5 or specific git commit)?

Yes, reproducible upstream.
