Konsole issue

From: Peter Laws <plaws@...>

After being on Ubuntu 14.1 LTS for years, I tried to update to 16.1.
Install media Would.  Not.  See.  workstation's RAID so switched to
CentOS 7 (all my production stuff uses that anyway).  Immediately
installed TDE, of course, 14.04 I think.

Two issues with Konsole, possibly related to the video driver (card is
an "AMD FirePro V4900" with their drivers).

First is that it seems to have trouble rendering the _ (underbar)
character.  No problem leaving random underbars on the screen as text
advances, but can't seem to put them in the right spot.  This is most
noticeable on the last line of a screen full of text.

Second, and much more annoying is that when I start Chrome (not my
primary browser but necessary for some sites), Konsole becomes
very    sluggish.  Not 2400-baud modem slow, but that was the first
thing I thought of.  Maybe more like 9600 ... or 14.4 ...


I do run yum update regularly.
