Description Paul Dickson 2006-05-13 11:43:38 EDT
Description of problem:
Prior to guile 1.8.0 register input fields were filled in as you typed, allowing
tab to be pressed once the correct field is found.  Now, after the first key is
pressed in a field and the value is guessed, all subsequent key presses are
insert inside the guessed value.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a register
2. Enter a transaction (or have a transaction already entered) with a value like
"tshirts x4".
3. Start typing in a new transaction with a field value like "tshirts x2".
Actual results:
As you type "tshirts x2", "tshirts x4" will pop up.  Then "tshshirts x4" as you
type the second and third characters.

Expected results:
As you type "tshirts x2", "tshirts x4" will pop up.  "tshirts x4" stays
suggested until either you hit tab, backspace, and then "2"; or until you type a
character not in the string "tshirts x4".

Additional info:
I'm not sure whether this is a guile bug or a gnucash bug, but since the only
apparent code change is a new version of guile, I believe the guilt resides there.

gnucash-1.9.5-3 with guile-1.8.0-2, g-wrap-1.9.6-4, slib-3a3-1 doesn't show this
problem on FC5, but on devel does. Maybe something else has changed?

I'm trying to revert gtk2 to see what that dones:

rpm -Uvh --oldpackage gtk2-devel-2.8.17-2.i386.rpm gtk2-engines-2.7.4-6.i386.rpm\
   gtk2-2.8.17-2.i386.rpm librsvg2-devel-2.14.3-2.i386.rpm \
   librsvg2-2.14.3-2.i386.rpm redhat-artwork-0.241-1.i386.rpm \
   libwmf- libgnomeui-2.14.1-2.i386.rpm \

This got me:
$ gnucash
gnucash-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libgnomeui-2.so.0: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory

Is this an unlisted dependency?
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2006-05-16 15:57:36 EDT
Will do some testing. Can you get this upstream as well?

I should probably build some test packages for FC5 to help diagnose these things.
Comment 4 Paul Dickson 2006-05-17 13:40:26 EDT
After the above error in #2, I revert gnucash (and compatible version of guile).
 I then ended up with the errors:

$ gnucash
<unnamed port>: In expression (user-vicinity):
<unnamed port>: Unbound variable: user-vicinity

This was from both previous versions of 1.9.5 and 1.9.4 of gnucash.

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2006-05-18 17:09:52 EDT
Fairly certain this isn't guile-related. Pushing to gnucash.
Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2006-05-23 22:11:26 EDT
Closing, will be fixed with a rebase to 1.9.7.
