Description greg hosler 2001-08-31 09:00:05 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.7-2smp i686; Nav)

Description of problem:
id you have source code with tabs in it (who doesn't?)
and you click on a variable in a line that has tabs
in it, the line is repainted wrongly. the variable highlighted is NOT the
variable that you clicked on. This bug has to do w/ handling of TAB

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.create a small 4 line hello_world source file:
    	printf("hello world\n");

Note the <TAB> before the printf
2.cc -g -o foo foo.c
3.ddd foo
4. click on the printf, then click on hello, then click on world.

Actual Results:  line should not be repainted wrongly

Expected Results:  line should not look like it is being repainted. the
should not "move" out from under you.

Additional info:

This has worked in every (I thinko) beta so far. I am pretty sure it
worked in rc1.

I am marking tjis as high, not because of loss of data, but because it
renders ddd quite difficult to use (also, by checking the changelog between
rc1, and rc2, you will probably find out the problem and it probably is a
simple fix - this has almost always worked before.)
Comment 1 greg hosler 2001-09-05 08:11:43 EDT
