Description Carsten Klein 2004-11-05 12:20:04 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:

Starting a gnome application and entering umlauts into some text-box
as first character in the text-box, then deleting the character yields
that the surrogate character (is this a surrogate one?) or combined
character that the umlaut represents is handled as if it were two
characters, that is first the diacritics (is this correct? I mean the
dots above the 'u' umlaut for example) are removed leaving a plain 'u'
and then the 'u' may be removed by pressing DEL a second time.

This only happens when entering an umlaut as first character in any
editable text-box. Any umlauts that are entered after the first umlaut
are treated correctly, i.e. they are handled as one single character
instead of two.

I noticed that when trying to figure out why openoffice.org would not
display any umlauts anymore, figuring that any GTK+ application would
behave exactly the same - but that is not the case.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gnome application
2. Enter umlauts into an editable text-box
3. DEL all umlauts

Actual Results:  see description

Expected Results:  
all umlauts should be treated as one-single character and not splitted
into two characters upon DEL.

Randomly re-assigning

Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2004-12-16 15:49:54 UTC
This should be fixed in the current gtk2 and pango packages in fc3.
