Description Damien Miller 2000-10-06 02:30:34 UTC
The gnome-terminal doesn't store the "Select-by-word characters" preference
when it is changes from the preferences dialog.

To replicate:

1. start a gnome-terminal

2. right click on terminal to bring up context menu

3. Select 'Preferences...'

4. Add an underscore to the beginning of the "Select-by-word" characters.

5. Click "OK"

6. Exit the gnome terminal

7. Repeat steps 1 through 3

The underscore that was added in step 4 has not been saved.

hmmm - actually gnome-terminal seems to ignore the contents of "wordclass" in
.gnome/Terminal altogether. Even with an empty "wordclass=" line in the config
it still uses the default word chars.

This appears to be fixed in gnome-core-1.2.4-3 (although I can confirm seeing it
in the stock 7.0 gnome-terminal)
