Description of problem:
In fedora FC1 using the latest xchat (2.0.7) and also
the fedora version (2.0.4) copying and pasting from the
input line does not work using the middle mouse button.
What does work using the middle mouse button:
1) Copying and pasting in X generally.
2) Copying and pasting from the scrolling text in xchat
3) Highlighting text that is being input in xchat
(before pressing enter) and pasting it anywhere else
but in xchat
What doesn't work
a) Highlighting text that is being input in one xchat
window (before pressing enter) and pasting it into the
input line of another xchat window using the middle mouse button.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.0.4 and 2.0.7

1.type some text in xchat. Don't press enter
2. Highlight it
3. attempt to paste in another xchat window using the middle mouse button
Actual Results: Nothing happens when you try to paste it. It doesn't
Expected Results: The highlighted text should be pasted.
I've just tested this and confirmed the issue described exists in
xchat 2.0.2, and have had others confirm it in 2.0.4 and 2.0.7 as
well. The problem has been reported to the upstream xchat
author via the sourceforge bug tracker:
I will monitor this issue in the upstream bug tracker and apply any
bug fixes that become available.
Changing status to 'UPSTREAM' to monitor periodically.
This is an upstream issue and has been reported.
