Do you know if this particular bug is fixed in later versions?
We won't be doing an upgrade of gnumeric right at the moment
(QA constraints, etc.) but it would be good to know if this
needs to be reported upstream or not.

I just created a quick'n dirty gnumeric-0.70 binary rpm and
tested it: The problem is still there. It even became worse
because the cut command doesn't even erase the cell(s) anymore.

Comment 3 Karsten Weiss 2001-09-04 12:30:45 UTC
I've also filed the bug report in the GNOME Bug Tracker. Bug #60000. :-)

Comment 4 Wayne Schuller 2002-01-07 02:32:33 UTC
Actually this bug is fixed in gnumeric 0.68.

We had a number of people that submitted it to gnome bugzilla and the bug has
been  resolved and closed there for a few months.



Comment 5 Owen Taylor 2002-01-24 15:53:56 UTC
There are now gnumeric-1.0 packages in rawhide and 
in ftp://people.redhat.com/hp/gnomehide that should have
the upstream fixes.
