Description Alexandre Oliva 2006-05-21 16:05:09 EDT
Description of problem:
As of a few days ago, gnome-terminal started translating ctrl-space to blank,
rendering emacs -nw pretty much unusable.  emacs still works properly as an X
application, and it works fine as a terminal application within konsole and
xterm.  Other gtk applications don't seem to be affected.

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start gnome-terminal
2.Type Ctrl-space

Actual results:
You get a blank

Expected results:
It should generate the same as Ctrl-@, like any other terminal emulator.

I forgot to mention that I have scim disabled, so that's not it.  My profile says:


and ctrl-space is no longer configured as a scim hot key.
Comment 2 Alexandre Oliva 2006-06-17 14:13:01 EDT
This is still broken in rawhide.
Comment 3 Alexandre Oliva 2006-07-27 00:28:27 EDT
Not any more, yay!
Comment 4 Behdad Esfahbod 2006-07-27 00:41:50 EDT
