not sure if this can be helpful, but I noticed that if I build TDE locally within a VM (debian) without using a clean
chroot build environment, I have similar issues with the refresh of Konsole (_ left randomly here and there, I actually
believe they are not underbars but part of characters which is not cleared properly). Building in the same VM but in
clean build environment does not cause this issue. The difference between the two is that when building locally packages
are linked against the VM video driver.
All this to point out that perhaps the issue is indeed related to video card support.
