Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 591518
Spellcheck keeps getting activated
Last modified: 2010-07-03 16:16:42 EDT
Description of problem:
In the last month or so I have started seeing the spellcheck feature of gnome-terminal (or maybe gnome) get activated while using ssh to other machines from a gnome-terminal window. It doesn't start on. It only effects one session. (Other gnome-terminal sessions opened at the same time are typically not affected.) I haven't figured out how to turn it off. In some cases it seemed some strings being typed in mail messages had a correlation with triggering the feature. (KDE was one such string.)
Having spell check on when using command oriented editors and mail clients (vi and mutt), is a real pain in the rear. I typically close out the terminal session and open a new one and re-ssh back to the remote host.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I am not sure how to trigger it.
Steps to Reproduce:
I haven't seen this happen for about a week now, so it may be fixed. I'll still leave this open for a while, but if I go another couple weeks without it happening, I'll assume some update fixed it.
I managed to trigger this again, though I am still not sure how.
Shift space turns this on and off. Since I now know how it is happening and how to fix it, I'll close the bug. Whatever is getting run really should be aware of the mode, but that would be a different bug.
