Recently I posted about the rendering issue with LXterminal. I just found the confirmed bug report on LaunchPad for Ubuntu. It seems that the issue, then, is not distribution-specific. Therefore, I would imagine that the bug report should be filed upstream with the LXDE project. Once that is done, I will post a link to the issue.
Today was the first lawn cutting of the season, and I believe that the lawn won the battle. I had to double-cut the entire back yard, once taking off about 7 cm, and then a second time taking off another 5 cm. I think it took seven or eight lawn refuse bags, and a full trash bin. I will likely have to cut it again tomorrow just to pick up the extra clippings! Hopefully this will get the yard under control, and I can get back to just cutting it once per week.
