Description Orion Poplawski 2006-03-21 18:37:25 EST
Description of problem:

For some reason, the xterm-208-2.FC4 update uncommented the example charClass
setting in the app-defaults file:

! Here is a pattern that is useful for double-clicking on a URL:
*charClass: 33:48,35:48,37-38:48,43-47:48,58:48,61:48,63-64:48,126:48

It is still commented out in FC5:

! Here is a pattern that is useful for double-clicking on a URL:
!*charClass: 33:48,35:48,37-38:48,43-47:48,58:48,61:48,63-64:48,126:48
! Alternatively,
!*on2Clicks: regex

Apparently this is an upstream change as of 208, but was reverted in 209:
Patch #208 - 2006/1/3 - XFree86

    * add charClass resource to XTerm.ad and UXTerm.ad which simplifies
selecting URLs (prompted by Kirill Ponomarew).

Patch #209 - 2006/2/12 - XFree86
    * revert the XTerm.ad change from patch #208 (Debian #348384).

Perhaps we can get another FC4 release?
Comment 1 Jason Vas Dias 2006-03-21 19:23:40 EST
The current xterm release in FC-4 is xterm-208-4 (in Updates/Testing, now moved
to Updates/Final).
I expect to be releasing the latest version, xterm-211, FC-4 to Updates/Testing
soon, in which this issue is also fixed (the offending line in the XTerm 
Xresources file is again commented out).

Comment 2 Jason Vas Dias 2006-04-13 21:58:59 EDT
Now fixed with xterm-212-1.FC4, released to Updates/Testing today.
Comment 3 Orion Poplawski 2006-04-24 15:41:28 EDT
Confirmed fixed.
Comment 4 Fedora Update System 2006-05-03 14:51:12 EDT
xterm-212-1.FC4 has been pushed for fc4, which should resolve this issue.  If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
