Description of problem:
When I want to copy some text from a document opened in OpenOffice.org Writer, the text saved to clipboard doesn't match the text I selected. Actually, this happens only when I start selecting the text, then wait (still holding left mouse button) and then continue (and so on, respectively). Only first part - from the beginning of the selection until the first stop of mouse movement - goes to the clipboard. Anyway, when I press CTRL+C, all the selected text goes to the clipboard, but then I additionally have to open klipper's menu and click on the newly saved item, although it is marked (!)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a document in OpenOffice.org Writer
2. Start selecting a test, stop moving your mouse but hold the left button, go on selecting, release the left button
3. Open klipper's menu (in KDE) or just paste your clipboard's content somewhere (middle button, not ctrl+p)
Actual Results: Only part of selected text is in the clipboard (as new item in klipper or pasted)
Expected Results: Whole selected text is in the clipboard (as new item in klipper or pasted)
Up-to-date system, KDE, IMPS/2 USB mouse.
Not seeing this anymore with 1.9.87 and up-to-date rawhide.
