Description Jonathan Kamens 2007-04-17 20:38:57 UTC

Highlight a message.  Click reply.  In the reply window, type C-a C-x, which
should clear the old message from the window.  Instead, it leaves you with a
blank line followed by an angle bracket (or, if you're using HTML format, a
quoting pipe).

If you add a linefeed to the last line of the quoted message, which doesn't have
one when the reply window pops up, and then hit C-a C-x, the window is cleared
as expected.

I don't know whether it's the C-a or C-x that's doing the wrong thing.

It seems to me like fixed, in Fedora 8, can you check, please? (I meant, I
cannot reproduce this in Fedora 8, it works as expected for me.)

Comment 2 Jonathan Kamens 2007-11-22 18:36:35 UTC
Weird.  It's "sort of" fixed.  If you start a reply with the quoting method set 
to quote rather than Outlook-style, then hit C-a C-x, the entire quoted message 
gets removed.  Now here's where it gets weird.  If you how hit ctrl-z, and then 
hit ctrl-a ctrl-x again, once again you end up with an angle bracket or quoting 
bar left over.  Not entirely fixed.
