Description Osma Ahvenlampi 2004-01-27 10:42:28 EST
Description of problem:
When copying text via the clipboard from a received message (either in
preview or message view window) to anywhere else (including evo's
message composer or gedit), linefeeds are stripped out from the text

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
evolution 1.4.5-7, gtkhtml3 3.0.9-5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open any text/plain message with more than two paragraphs
2. paint and copy text
3. paste said text to evo composer or gedit
Actual results:
lines are merged, ie

line1 has some text
line2 has more text


line1 has some textline2 has more text

Expected results:
text should be copied as-is, including linefeeds

Confirming this bug. I just copied a message with line breaks, not
confusing with line wrap, to vi in gnome-terminal. Tried different
ways, from preview pane, from opened message in separate window, from
editor after hitting reply, tried the menu copy and paste, tried
selecting and middle mouse button... Yes, very annoying bug.
