GNOME-terminal cut & paste problem

Unable to cut and paste between gnome-terminal 1.2.1 and
How do you do the cut, and how do you do the paste, and into which part of
Netscape? (i.e. do you choose a menu item to cut, choose a menu item to paste,
or just use mouse buttons? Do you paste into the location bar or a text box?)
Cut and paste works fine between Netscape windows by using higliting and Alt-c
and to paste Alt-v. It also works by cut in Netscape Alt-c and pasting into
gnome-terminal 1.2.4 by using Edit->Paste (Ctl-V does not work) also, there is
no Edit->Cut or Edit->Copy options.
That gnome-terminal menu accelerators are displayed is a bug, gnome-terminal
doesn't have accelerators because it needs to send those keys to applications.
Also, I agree gnome-terminal should have cut/copy menu items. Both of those
should be filed as individual reports though so they get tracked.
Should I leave a bug open that cut and paste from Netscape to gnome-terminal
fails? When does that happen?
Actually, cut in netscape and paste into gnome-terminal works.
What does not work is cut in gnome-terminal and paste into netscape (forms,
email, location bar, etc)
Please keep ticket open utill fixed.
I will open ticket for gnome terminal.
