Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 204951
Clipboard copy strips empty lines
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:41 EST
Description of problem:
Running on RawHide/development system and my gnome-terminal started to "grep ."
all the copy-pasted text.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gnome-terminal with shell.
2. Type: echo -e '1\n\n2\n3';cat >/dev/null
3. Mark the FOUR lines and paste it back.
Only THREE lines get pasted.
All the FOUR lines (inluding the empty one) would get pasted as in FC5.
Left/middle mouse or menu copy/paste have the same effect.
Problem is with the "copy" part. Copying from Galeon and pasting it to
gnome-terminal is fine.
Not tested vte anywhere else than with gnome-terminal.
This is already fixed upstream. A release for final GNOME 2.16.0 will be made
this weekend and pushed into rawhide. Thanks.
