Description of Problem:

When selecting text from a konsole window (either by double-clicking a word 
with the left mouse button or by holding the left button down while 
dragging) does not leave the text highlighted (as it normally does), 
although it may flash for a brief instant, leaving the user very confused 
about whether or not he/she successfully selected the text.  If you then 
attempt to paste the text elsewhere you will find that it was correctly 
selected even though it didn't look like it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

KDE 3.0

How Reproducible:

Intermittent.  Only happens a few percent of the time, and I haven't 
noticed any particular pattern or cause.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select a word in a konsole by doubleclicking.  Does it remain 

Actual Results:

Expected Results:

Comment 1 Petr Rockai 2006-07-17 18:38:12 UTC
This bug is reported against old release of Red Hat Linux or Fedora Core 
that is no longer supported. Chances are that it has been already fixed in 
newer Fedora Core release. If you still experience the problem with 
current release of Fedora Core, please update the Version field (you may 
need to switch Product to Fedora Core first) in the bug report and put it 
back to NEW state.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2006-10-18 18:15:05 UTC
Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at

Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do
want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks.
If this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core release, please
open a new bug with the relevant information.

Closing as CANTFIX.
