Description Jonathan Kamens 2000-05-15 23:25:47 UTC
In XFree86 3.3.6, M-d in an Xaw text widget (e.g., the edit widget of
"xedit") deletes a word forward as it should.  But this key binding no
longer works in xedit or any other Xaw text widget in XFree86 4.0-0.8.
Other Meta key bindings, e.g., M-DEL, M-b, M-f, work just fine.

Comment 1 Jonathan Kamens 2000-05-28 21:01:59 UTC
I found the problem.  In these lines in lib/Xaw/TextTr.c:

"~s m<Key>D:"		"kill-word(alnum)\n"
"~s m<Key>H:"		"backward-kill-word(alnum)\n"

The upper case 'D' and 'H' should be replaced with lower-case 'd' and 'h'.

Fixed in 4.0-0.21
