Description of problem:
When copying a string or url from one tab in Galeon (via Ctl+C keyboard
shortcut) and pasting said string into form elements on another tab (via Ctl+V.
This specifically occurs when I attempt to cut n' paste a url from the URL: bar
into the Body: field on my Yahoo! mail account.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Ctl+C a URL from the url bar in Galeon
2. Switch to a tab with a form on it.
3. Ctl+V the url into a form element.
Actual Results: Galeon (the GUI portion) crashed. A background (zombie)
process appears to be left behind every once in a while (non-regular occurrence).
Expected Results: The bloody URL should have been pasted into my form element.
i could reproduce your bug easily on my PIII laptop even after all the recent
up2dates installed upon skipjack beta-2.
I can't reproduce this. It's working just fine here. Is there a site that is
publically accessable that I can reproduce this?
I could give you a login to my home box. It's on a Comcast cable modem. You
could try running Galeon remotely.
I just tried it and achieved the same results as when I run it locally.
The easiest way I've found to do this is by attempting to paste a URL from
another tab into the body of a message on my Yahoo! mail account. Perhaps that
will help in diagnosing the issue.
Running it as root actually gives an error message on the terminal (as opposed
to running it as a user, which gives no error message). Namely:
"Gdk-ERROR **: file gdkselection.c: line 246 (gdk_string_to_compound_text):
assertion failed: (property.encoding == gdk_atom_intern ("COMPOUND_TEXT", FALSE)
&& property.format == 8)
