The scroll bar feature would be INVALID for Fremantle, and it's probably better
to split the other two into separate bugs. Keeping this one for reset.
I can't find a patch for the reverse function apart from a partial one in
<http://pastebin.com/f64c43915>, but please feel free to open a new enhancement
request if you can locate it.

add reset/reset_and_clear functions to the menu
A starting point for adding reset functions back, against 0.14.mh24 (I couldn't
build trunk, sorry).
My hildon-fu is very weak, so any criticism is welcome. One thing that's
definitely wrong with it is that the button labels are not localised.
Other than that it seems to work fine here. To test:
1. Start osso-xterm.
2. Run "head /bin/sh" to corrupt the terminal.
3. Select either Reset or Reset and clear from the menu to recover.

That should be enough. Ironically, a lot of these features actually are in
osso-xterm but options to use them are taken out (as is the case with the reset
and reset-and-clear features). I'm using scratchbox over SSH and I can tell you
that reset(-and-clear) are definitely neeeded.
Fixed as of osso-xterm-0.14.mh28:

Marking patches of interest to Diablo (Maemo4) community updates, please excuse
Internal version 45-14 that I am running here definitely offers the option to
Reset as it's osso-xterm 0.14.mh29. Don't know if the fix wa already included

Definitely was not.
The problem reported here should be fixed in the update released today for
public: The Maemo5 update version 2.2009.51-1 (also called "PR1.1" sometimes).
Please leave a comment if the problem is not fixed for you in this update
