Bug Description

Binary package hint: libvte-common

Under Ubuntu 8.10 Gnome-terminal and xfce-terminal incorrectly render devanagari script. Gedit (with the same font) renders the same text correctly. See example in screenshot. Using libvte 0.17.4-0ubuntu1.

(Font is Liberation Mono in both applications).

It seems this is still not fixed! I am on Ubuntu 16.04 facing exactly the same problem!
