Description Zigzagcom 2006-04-05 02:16:32 EDT
Description of problem:
After opening the "messages" log in System Log Viewer, I wanted to copy and
paste a single line from the output for a google search. I highlight the line,
go to Edit-->Copy in the menu of the logviewer, and then paste the copied line
either in gedit or the browser, but instead of the selected line, it pastes the
line two entries or higher above the copied line. So far I have determined that
the following log files are affected by this behaviour:

The following logs are not affected on my system:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
System Log Viewer 2.14.0

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open log viewer
2.Open the log to monitor
3.Highlite line in log
4.Select from menu Edit-->Copy
5.Paste copied line to gedit or other text entry field  
Actual results:
The pasted line is not the copied line

Expected results:
The pasted line matches the copied line

system-logviewer was not included in FC5.

I am surprised, as it is a part of gnome-utils-2.14.0-3, i.e., it is not a
seperate component anymore. Am I missing something?
