Description Satyabrata Maitra 2010-09-08 06:39:02 EDT
Description of problem:
In pango (tested it in gedit and firefox), the deletion with DELETE key, is not following the rule of deleting entire composed character with a single key press. It is deleting each of the character in a composed character, one by one.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open gedit or firefox in mr_IN locale
2. Activate ibus with CTRL+SPACE. Select marathi - Inscript
3. Type : kdk (which means consonant KA + Halant + Consonant KA)
4. Position the cursor at the beginning point of the composed character.
5. Now, press DELETE key. (It needs 3 key strokes to delete the whole character, but it should be done with a single key stroke in fact)

Actual results:
Delete composed character is happening in wrong manner. Actually it is now following the convention (Rule) of BACKSPACE, when deleting a composed character comes into picture.

Expected results:
It should delete the whole composed character in one DELETE key stroke when cursor positions at the start of the composed character.

This seems not yet fixed in even f20. though the cursor stops in between. is it also wrong then?
