gnome-panel-screenshot not stripping *special* chars when using window title as screenshot filename
Last modified: 2013-09-02 02:04:42 EDT
When using firefox, and attempting to take a window screenshot (<alt>PrntScrn),
I attempted to save the screenshot to my desktop. However, I am presented with
an error dialog indicating that it did not have permissions to write the file.
However, the real problem is it attempted to save the file while not escaping
'/' characters from the filename. Hence, it tried to save the file
"/home/jlaska/Desktop/Screenshot-Index of /~komornik/tasche/fedora - Mozilla
Firefox.png". Of course this fails due to the '/' in the filename. I think
simply escaping the '/' as '\/' would fix this.

jrb: is this fixed upstream?
