Source: xchat-gnome
Version: 1:0.30.0~git20131003.d20b8d-2
Severity: serious
Justification: renders package unusable

1. Join #one and #two
2. On #one, cause enough activity to fill the window and require
   scrolling; make sure the view of #one is scrolled to the bottom
3. Set the focus to #two
4. With another client, speak on #one
5. Set the focus to #one
6. The channel should be scrolled to the bottom so that the new activity
   is visible; but instead, the view is scrolled back some way;
   additional user input is required to scroll to the bottom before the
   new activity is visible

This was reported in Ubuntu

there's no fix available.
