Description Michael Soulier 2003-11-20 12:02:33 EST
The default select-by-word behaviour in gnome-terminal sometimes crosses newlines, which it should never do unless you've added a newline char to the list of select-by-word chars. So, for example, if I have... [msoulier@sme60build ServiceLink-spamfiltering]$ rpmsearch ServiceLink-spamfiltering /home/e-smith/files/ibays/development/files/rpms/RPMS/noarch/ServiceLink-spamfiltering-1.1.0-02.noarch.rpm In my terminal, and I select the path to the rpm file, it includes the "ServiceLink-spamfiltering" text on the previous line, which is obviously not what I intended. Select by word should not cross newline boundaries unless I drag the mouse across them myself. Any other terminal I've used does this correctly.

Fedora Core 1 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
