Description Pete Zaitcev 2009-07-08 13:20:55 EDT
Description of problem:

Apparently gvim cannot communicate with any selections properly anymore
(cannot import them or create them).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

vim-X11-7.2.148-1.fc11.x86_64  <===== not changed since F11!

Components changed today:
glib2-2.21.3-1.fc12.x86_64 --- unlikely, but...

xorg-x11-server-Xorg was updated too, but I ran over TCP to a different
display, same story. So that's not it.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. open gvim
2. create a selection CLIPBOARD somewhere else
3. optional: verify with  xclip -o -selection clipboard
4. go back to gvim and do "+p
Actual results:

No paste

Expected results:


Additional info:

Forget complains about the "CRITICAL **: gtk_form_set_static_gravity:
assertion `static_gravity_supported' failed". This one is a bit problem,
virtually makes gvim useless.

Interesting. Sounds like client-side window fallout.

If you want to close this and track upstram it's fine, I have account.
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2009-07-10 22:23:27 EDT
Should be fixed in 2.17.4
Comment 4 Pete Zaitcev 2009-07-11 13:37:24 EDT
Confirmed fixed (I downloaded gtk2-2.17.4-1.fc12.x86_64 from Koji).
