I upgraded from Ubuntu Oneiric 11.10 to the RC of Ubuntu Precise 12.04. After the upgrade, borders appear which I cannot get rid of.
This shows rxvt-unicode's background set to red and Vim background set to blue.
On Oneiric 11.10 there was no red border, and Vim was the full width/height of the terminal window.
This appears to be an rxvt-unicode issue as
gnome-terminal wraps Vim without borders.
I've tinkered with
URxvt.font, setting both
pixelsize and just
size, but neither has any effect.
I've tried starting Vim with
-u NONE -X to confirm it's not a plug-in issue as well as running rxvt-unicode with its defaults. Neither had any result.
As far as I can tell, the version update between Oneiric (was 9.12) and Precise (is 9.14) (cannot link to Ubuntu packages due to reputation) is only minor. I've looked at the 9.14 Changelog, but there wasn't anything too suspicious apart from:
- fix alignment of inherited root pixmap when it is a different size than the root window and the terminal window is off the left or top edge (Mikachu).
Has anyone else encountered this in rxvt-unicode? Is there a workaround?
