Forcing screen refresh in kterm to remove ghost characters?

Hi,

I am using kterm on my Paperwhite (e.g. for playing text adventures using frotz, etc.) and soon after using kterm for a little while, ghost characters are starting to be visible.

Is there a way to force a screen refresh in kterm?

The global Screen Referesh setting in Amazon's Kindle Settings control panel does not seem to make a difference when using kterm.

Very best wishes
pete

void reset_terminal(GtkWidget *widget, gpointer terminal){
vte_terminal_reset(terminal, TRUE, TRUE);
}

I suppose there are a few options

The least calorie one/more annoying one being:

"Press top left of terminal window and select RESET TERMINAL (or REVERSE COLORS)"

A more advanced approach might be to link that to a single gesture or to alternate two calls to the color inversion to fake a full flash.

Failing that you could link the call to some nominal amount of interaction or timescale.
etc.

use the 2 finger touch to open kterm menu.. then close it.. by touching the 'X'.. this forces a screen refresh..
