comment Terminal unusable in Virtual Machine
@DougSmythies I'm sorry Doug, but I've moved on and deleted that VM. Your answer did work and was the cause of the problem if that helps. It did make the GUI very very slow however, i.e. gksudo took about 20 seconds to "fade" the screen.

That worked perfectly! Thanks. You might want to add to your answer the way to change the editor, I found that solution here: lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-server/2011-March/005247.html

This is perhaps a silly question, but I can't seem to find where the VM is stored to edit it with virsh. I can see that the image is stored in /var/lib/libvirt/images but trying to use virsh on that doesn't work.

@DougSmythies I think it is, I followed the directions on howtogeek.com/117635/…. What can I run to check?

It seems that xterm works OK out of the box, it is the gnome-terminal that has the visual artifacts.
