Description James Manning 2002-04-02 18:31:57 EST
Description of Problem: 
If you highlight a selection of characters in a text area in konqueror 
and hit shift-delete, it no longer puts those characters into the clipboard. 
It *does* put them in the clipboard if it's a input type=text (one-line input) 
but not for textarea.  Easiest to confirm with the comments textarea for a 
bugzilla entry (should be one nearby as you see this :) 
AFAICT, a regression from 2.2.x 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
jmm@jmm:/home/jmm> rpm -qf `which konqueror` 
How Reproducible: 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. go to a page with a textarea 
2. type in some text 
3. select some of it, hit shift-delete 
Actual Results: 
selected text deletes but does not go to the clipboard / cut buffer 
Expected Results: 
should work like the normal input - shift-del should put in clipboard 
Additional Information:

still a problem in 7.3 - everything works great in mozilla (in a textarea,
whatever you just did a shift-delete on will be what gets pasted when you do a
shift-insert afterwards)

no problem with kdebase-3.3.1-4.3.FC3, closing...
