After updating to f86-video-intel 2.99.911-1, urxvt starts to behave erratically - seems that the text (commandline prompt, command input and output) changes the color to the same as the background i.e. becomes invisible. Changing the background color doesn't help, whether it's black or orange, the text "disappears". xterm works fine.
Reinstalling xf86-video-intel 2.99.910-1 fixes the issue.

I found no related info in the logs or systemd's journal.
This task depends upon

Sorry it took so long. Turns out it has something to do with xft:terminus setting in my ~.Xresources and 'urxvt -fn xft:terminus' aliases.
Using 'urxvt*font: *-terminus-medium-r-*-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-*-*' works as expected and so does 'urxvt -fn xft:Bitstream Vera Sans Mono'.

I'm using terminus-font 4.38-4 from [community].

I haven't really looked into this and I don't understand what's going on, but I think it can be closed.
