Description Matthew Kirkwood 2000-07-27 19:07:16 UTC
(Again, I believe this to be a zvt bug, hence gnome-libs.  It has been in
the gnome-1.2 stuff forever, so I don't believe that it will have been
fixed since beta3.)

Double-middle-clicking in a gnome-terminal will cause the text to be pasted
three times.

Also, affects mouse-wheel scrolling -- two clicky-scrolly-movements in
close succession on the wheel appear to effect three scrolls, whereas done
slowly it

... the text of the above defect report appears to have been cut off.  Please
check it and see if there is any more data to present.  I need to know what's
missing so I can determine it it's a MUST-FIX or not for Winston. Thanks!

Comment 2 Matthew Kirkwood 2000-07-30 22:39:18 UTC
Oops, my attention span is a bit ... Hey!  Nice car!

So what was I saying?  I don't think there's much more info to present, but the
bug might be more complete with "scrolls roughly (probably exactly) a third

Comment 3 Matthew Kirkwood 2000-07-31 15:43:24 UTC
Here's a possible fix to the paste bit, from Paul Warren
<pdw@ferret.lmh.ox.ac.uk> (who would be a very worthwhile addition to the beta
team, BTW).  I guess that the scroll thing is as easily fixed but don't have
time to read source right now.

I've fixed this but it isn't in the tree yet, has to get through QA

Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2000-08-16 20:20:57 UTC
This should now be in the tree
