No font fits in fullscreen mode & toolbar disabled due to 1 pixel border

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
(Control Panel > General > About product)
STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:
install fixedsys font from http://www.fixedsysexcelsior.com/ or any font with
height of 16 pixels
in fullscreen you should have exactly 480/16 = 30 lines (12pt size = 16 pixels)
You end up with 29 lines and one empty 14 pixel line on the bottom. Same thing
happens with any other font since 480-2 = 478 = 2*239 (239 is prime number) so
no size fits nicely.
EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:
bitmap font http://www.fixedsysexcelsior.com/ at 12 points
This is bug/feature of libvte, see
See also discussion
Since Maemo uses old and patched libvte this is actually request to apply one
more patch - http://fanoush.wz.cz/maemo/vte4.border.patch
Created an attachment (id=897) [details]
Also attaching the patch here, too much bad experience with down servers. :-)
I assume it's still valid in Fremantle SDK alpha that contains osso-xterm?
Unfortunately it's WONTFIX for Diablo but I'd love to help pushing this into
Fremantle if required.

Where do I copy that file?
Exact steps to reproduce very welcome!

Just create it as ordinary user
cp FSEX300.ttf ~/.fonts
If you don't see it in osso-xterm font list, reboot device to get it refreshed.
Choose size 12 pt (12 pt should be 16 pixels) and in case it looks blurry you
may play with zoom buttons to get to 100% font size.
Ah, this only happens without the toolbar shown! Hah! :-)
Yes, reproducible in Diablo 5.2008.43-7:
1. Start X-Terminal.
2. Go to Tools > Settings.
3. Set Font to "Monospace" and set Size to 16.
4. Click OK.
5. Disable View > Show toolbar > Full screen.
6. View > Fullscreen
7. Run "ls" for a few times
In Fremantle there will be no option to disable the toolbar so there is no way
to make this happen anymore. (Note to myself: cf. int-108878)
For Diablo this is a WONTFIX as Diablo is in maintenance mode and Nokia will
only provide bugfixes for critical issues if at all.
For your interest the Mer project aims to provide a community backport of
Fremantle for N8x0 devices. See http://wiki.maemo.org/Mer for more information.
Hence closing (I think WONTFIX fits best here).
Marking patches of interest to Diablo (Maemo4) community updates, please excuse
