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

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

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.
