Description Damien, Miller 1999-05-29 04:19:21 UTC
gnome-terminal looses curly braces '{' and '}' from the
start of pasted lines.

To replicate, enter the following at a terminal:

cat >> /dev/null
{
{
}
}

Then highlight the lines with the braces and paste them back
into the terminal - only newlines are pasted.

Very strange, but yes, this is a bug.

Comment 2 Owen Taylor 1999-06-09 20:12:59 UTC
This is fixed as of gnome-libs-1.0.10, which should be coming
out as an update soon.
