hmm - _looking_ for the problem, I ran uxterm with valgrind (which reported
no problem...), but I resized the window back and forth a few times and
after several tries, got some debris on the screen which corresponds
to what you're describing.  (Scrolling with the shifted pageup/pagedown
or with the scrollbar didn't produce it; it's the repainting due to
resizes dragging text out of the scrollback which gives the result).

thanks for the report (I'll work on this now)
