editing text file with gedit seriously destroys the file
Last modified: 2010-04-10 05:06:09 EDT
Description of problem:
Well, as shown in the summary editing text file
with gedit seriously destroys the file...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download rawhide xscreensaver.spec (from Fedora CVS, for example)
2. open xscreensaver.spec with $ gedit xscreensaver.spec $
3. At the top of gedit window, type return key
4. type Ctrl-S and save the document
See the attached.
I did not see this issue yesterday, so this may be due to
some other component.

original xscreensaver.spec file
Created attachment 388350 [details]
xscreensaver.spec with edited by gedit
2.28.3 does not seem to reproduce this issue.
Still reproducible with 2.29.5
Still seeing this problem with 2.29.6-1.fc13
I cannot reproduce this here.
Unfortunately still reproducible... with gedit-2.29.6-1.fc13.i686
Not reproducible with gedit-2.28.3-1.fc12.i686
I am still not able to reproduce. Anything different on your system, e.g. using a non-UTF-8 locale, or something like that ?
I am using LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8, however even if I set LANG=C on
uxterm this seems reproducible.

Well, I don't know if this is useful or not, however I will
attach strace log with
- $ script strace.log
- $ strace gedit xscreensaver.spec
- On launched gedit, just
* type return key
* type backspace key
* type ctrl-s
* type ctrl-q
- $ exit
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 13 development cycle.
Changing version to '13'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
gedit-2.29.8-2.fc13.i686 still reproduces this issue.
I tried 2.30.0-1.fc13 for a day and it issue seems no
longer reproducible. Once closing.
