When you say "non-broken terminal program" are you talking about my
terminal emulator? In the SS I was running Terminator, but I have also
tried with gnome-terminal, urxvt, rxvt, xterm and aterm and the
problem persists.

Curiously lxterminal, Terminal (xfce terminal) and guake, vim covers
the whole window. Afaik Terminal and gnome-terminal are both based on
xterm, so I would expect the issue on both.
