I can reproduce, Terminal 0.2.4, but I generally have to scroll fast.
Using the mousewheel it happens pretty much every time (since I want
to get to the bottom of the output, or the beginning of the session I
just scroll a whole bunch and let it work  itself out, ala Fitt's

Slacware 10.1, Gtk+ 2.6.1

Alright, back offline to deal with family stuff. Sorry for being
incommunicado guys.
