Bug Description

Bug Description:
Characters such as ~!@#$%^&*() are not displayed correctly in Terminal when Tamil Language is used. These characters overlap each other (see picture1). See picture2 for asterisk character overlapping with alphabets in Terminal and not overlapping in gedit.

Expected output:
In GNOME terminal, the "@#S*" characters should not overlap.

Hi Pedro,

I tried Tamil GNOME Terminal and the problem I reported is not reproducible.
The special characters do not overlap each other in Ubuntu 11.04. You can
close the bug. I have attached the screen shot (Picture1) confirming the
same.

I reported another bug 810082. In that I mentioned about asterisk character
in GNOME Terminal. That problem does not appear in Ubuntu 11.04. You can
close that bug also.

The above two bugs are not seen with 'terminator'. See the attached picture
(Picture2)

Hello Pedro,

Unfortunately I see the problem again 11.04.

So the problem exists in Ubuntu 11.04. I do not why I did not see the
problem yesterday.

Attached is the screen shot (Picture1_New)

lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 11.04
Release: 11.04

I have attached some other details that may be relevant.

One more thing: The other bug: 810082. That problem is also seen. It is
related to asterisk character in Tamil GNOME terminal. So this bug is also
not resolved.

Kindly contact me if you need more details.

I like to take part in fixing this bug. I am a new person to bug reporting
and fixing. What are the things I should learn to contribute in fixing? Do
you have some webpage that explains to newbies? About me: I have some
programming experience in C, C++, PERL, TCL, Shell. Kindly advise.

Regards
Anbarasan
