If for example you're entering the pathname of an icon
for a launcher on the GNOME panel (or indeed entering text
in any Gtk text field with a history dropdown, it seems),
it remembers any old entries in the history dropdown. This
is great, but there are two bugs:
+ it doesn't remove duplicates from the history dropdown
+ if there is an entry in the history dropdown which
matches the one you are trying to enter, ignoring
differences in case, it auto-corrects your entries
capitalization to that of the one in the history.
This is very nice except for one problem: if you
got the capitalization wrong first time, you're then
sunk -- you can't enter it the right way!
This is a bug in the GnomeEntry widget.
Assign bug to GnomeEntry author.
