Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 836265
Some variable names usable in Memory feature should be reserved
Last modified: 2016-09-19 22:14:39 EDT
Description of problem:
If using Memory feature in gcalctool, you can choose the name of variable where you want to save the value, but there is no restriction, so I can save the value e.g. under name "rand" or "5" and variables like these cannot be used again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get the result of any calculation and save it under variable named "rand"
2. Clear display, open Memory dialog and click to your saved variable named "rand"
The random number appeared
Gcalctool should warn you that you are going to save under reserved name and do not allow to save it
gcalctool should use your value you have chosen independently on how you named it before
The bug is still present in gnome-calculator-3.8.2-1.el7.x86_64
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Still present within the 3.14 (gnome-calculator-3.14.1-1.el7.x86_64).
realistically, the only way we'll get a fix for this is if an upstream fix comes in with a rebase.
