gnome-system-log: copy copies wrong lines when log is filtered
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:57 EST
Description of problem:
With a filter applied, the text copied from the gnome-system-log log viewing
window is not the text selected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open the gnome-system-log application.
3.Enable the filter, and enter "kernel" in the filter input widget.
4.Copy some lines from the log and paste them into gedit.
5.Be surprised when what you see is not what you selected in gnome-system-log.
Copies lines of the log file that are not the ones selected.
Expected to copy visibily selected lines from the particular log.
Still present in f7, gnome-utils-1:2.18.1-1.fc7. My guess is that the line
numbers are taken from filterd output, but absolute ones are copied.
Corresponding upstream bug: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=343215
Shall we close this one as upstream then?
We could certainly do that, since I doubt that we are going to fix this
independent from upstream.
