Description Dams 2004-10-21 17:36:12 UTC

Description of problem:
evolution is wrapping urls that contains some chars like "-" or "+",
which is very stupid.
See window shot at http://rpm.livna.org/~anvil/Capture-Composer.png.
Urls shouldnt be wrapper like that. Evo 1.x didnt have this problem.

Version-Release number of selected component: evolution(0:2.0.2-1)

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start evolution.
2. Ctrl-shit-m (new message)
3. paste a quite long url in the composer window.

Actual Results: url is linewrapped.
Additional info: FWIW, i'm using fr_FR.UTF-8 locale.

Comment 1 Tom Duffy 2004-10-21 23:23:39 UTC
If you highlight the URL and change the format to "Preformat" from
"Normal", evolution won't wrap it.


Comment 2 Dams 2004-10-22 05:20:03 UTC
Of course, I know this workaround, but evolution 1.x behaviour was
smarter. It used not to wrap urls. There was no need to force "preformat".

Comment 3 Dams 2004-12-16 20:22:45 UTC
I've just noticed this also applies to received mails as well (i.e.
not in the composer, but in evolution mail rendering engine itself).

Switching to FC3, since this bug definitly survived the upgraded from
test3 to final release.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Closing per lack of response to previous request for information.  This bug was
originally filed against a much earlier version of Fedora Core, and significant
changes have taken place since the last version for which this bug is confirmed.

Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security
fixes only.  Please install a still supported version and retest.  If
it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct
version.  Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the
product to Fedora Legacy.  Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not
get to this bug earlier.
