Description Aleksandar Milivojevic 2004-11-26 10:58:45 EST
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041020 Firefox/0.10.1 Description of problem: When selecting region that contains empty lines, space is added to each empty line. Let say terminal window displayes this (I've replaced all spaces with "_" (underscore) for clarity): first_line third_line If above region is selected (three lines, one of which is empty) and than pasted, what will be pasted looks like this: first_line _ third_line Empty line was replaced with line that has " " (space) at the beggining. Usually this isn't the problem, sometimes it is just minor annoyance (vi file & :%s/^ $//g), and in very rare cases it is major pain in the butt ;-) Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnome-terminal-2.7.3-1 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Select region that contain at least one empty line 2. Paste it into (any) editor 3. If you check, you'll see that empty line was replaced with line that has space at the begining of the line.

Oh, one thing I forgot to ask. This more kind of feature request than bug. How much work would it take to preserve tabs when cut&pasting (or select&pasting)? It would make selecting and pasting (for example) sendmail rewriting rules possible (currently, this informatin is lost, all tabs are expanded to spaces when region of text is selected). It would be kind of nice thing to have. If it doesn't require too much work to implement, of course.

Fedora Core 3 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 FC5 updates or in the FC6 test release, reopen and change the version to match. Thank you!

Closing per lack of response to previous request for information. This bug was originally filed against a much earlier version of Fedora Core, and significant changes have taken place since the last version for which this bug is confirmed. Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security fixes only. Please install a still supported version and retest. If it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct version. Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the product to Fedora Legacy. Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not get to this bug earlier.

Sory for the lack of response. I've switched to KDE some time ago. Anyhow. I've retested it with gnome-terminal-2.7.3-2 under RHEL4, and the problem seems to have been fixed.
Comment 5 Behdad Esfahbod 2006-11-06 17:26:19 EST
Yes, this is definitely fixed.
