Description of problem:
Pasting text from "nedit" (a GPL'ed graphical text editor, see
http://wwww.nedit.org/) to gnome-terminal using the "X" method (hightlight
the text, use the middle mouse button to paste) doesn't work. However,
copying from gnome-terminal to nedit does work.
X Copy/paste to and from gnome-terminal to any non-nedit X app works fine.
X Copy/paste to and from nedit to any non-gnome-terminal X app works fine
(including nxterm and xterm). Why do I believe the problem is with
gnome-terminal and not with nedit? Because with RH71 (and all older
versions) it was possible to X-paste into gnome-terminal from nedit.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.open nedit, type some text
2.highlight the text using the left mouse button
3.paste into an open gnome-terminal window using the middle mouse button
Actual Results: nothing appears in the gnome-terminal window
Expected Results: the highlighted text should appear
I've tried both v5.1.1 and v5.2 of nedit.
nedit doesn't support the i18n text that gnome-terminal is requesting.
gnome-terminal needs the legacy STRING paste type added back for compat.
