When copying multiline text, it also copies non-existing trailing spaces
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:43 EST
From bug #217276:
Here is the problem by example:
1. open gnome-terminal
2. open a text file that contains more than 1 lines of text with mcedit
3. select 2 or more lines of text with the mouse by holding Shift key on the
4. copy the selected text and paste it to another text editor.
5. it pastes trailing spaces together with the text.
It is fixed in slang-2.0.7-1.fc6. Could the fix please be backported to RHEL?
BTW, it is a regression from RHEL 4.
