Lastly I noticed very annoying problem. When I scroll up text in less or man by pressing 'k' or 'Page-Up', terminal screen becomes black (excepting first line) until I scroll it down. This problem appears only when I running URxvt, on xterm or in framebuffer console everything is OK.
My .Xresources: http://pastebin.com/8eXZb8J1

I would be very thankful if someone help me, or maybe give me some advice or tip how to fix it.

I also use urxvt and I don't have this problem. Maybe you can start with a very simple .Xdefaults file and add back one or two things at a time and see what breaks. My .Xdefaults, which works, is:

Code:

*foreground:            #ffffff
urxvt*font:             xft:Terminus:size=10
urxvt*urlLauncher:      firefox-bin
urxvt*perl-ext-common:  default,matcher,tabbed
urxvt*matcher.button:   1
urxvt*scrollBar:        false
urxvt*depth:            32
urxvt*background:       rgba:0000/0000/0000/dfdf
urxvt*inheritPixmap:    true
urxvt*tintColor:        white
urxvt*shading:          50

I haven't changed my .Xresources for a long time and everything was working. The worst thing is that I haven't noticed the moment it broke.

I'll try to reemerge urxvt, maybe it will help.

EDIT:
Reemerging didn't help. I also tried with minimal .Xresources (of course loaded it with xrdb) but it didn't solved the problem. :( I don't use .Xdefaults.

In the interest of troubleshooting, try mv'ing your .Xresources to a backup and starting with no .Xdefaults or .Xresources. Does the problem still persist?

Clearly, something has changed. Did you update world and then notice this problem? What WM or DE are you using?

I moved my .Xresources to another localization but it didn't help.

I'm sure that I didn't update world but your question caused I remind that recently I moved my gentoo installation to on another disk. I'm using BTRFS from 3.6.0 kernel sources so maybe after making fs and copying data, some crucial system files became corrupted? It's strange because I haven't noticed any other issues after switching to another disk. I can't remember if this problem occured on old disk. I haven't removed copies of files from second disk so in next step I'll try to boot from it and check this.

I'm using Enlightenment from svn.

Me, too. Couple of things you could try:

1. Re-emerge enlightenment. I hear they make lots of commits daily, so if something was broken, it might be fixed.

2. See if you have this problem in another WM - any other. If not, then you know it has something to do with E. If it does, then it's likely more about X than E.

Reemerging enlightenment solved my problem. :)
