I cannot reproduce this here.
Comment 6 Mamoru TASAKA 2010-02-15 11:01:20 EST
Unfortunately still reproducible... with gedit-2.29.6-1.fc13.i686
Not reproducible with gedit-2.28.3-1.fc12.i686
Comment 7 Matthias Clasen 2010-02-26 20:46:34 EST
I am still not able to reproduce. Anything different on your system, e.g. using a non-UTF-8 locale, or something like that ?
Comment 8 Mamoru TASAKA 2010-02-28 13:46:38 EST
I am using LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8, however even if I set LANG=C on
uxterm this seems reproducible.

strace log

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:
