Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 836971
Change of the base of the logarithm by Alt does not remove the automatically entered space

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #834314 +++
Description of problem:
When press the [log] button, gcalctool enters the white space automatically right after "log". If I press the button to write subscript after it, gcalctool automatically removes the space, but when I use the Alt key to do it, gcalctool doesn't remove the the space automatically. This causes the "Malformed expression" error.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press button [log]
2. Hold Alt and press 2 on HW keyboard
3. Release Alt and press e.g. 512
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 applies in current releases; I've filed an upstream bug.
realistically, the only chance that we're ever going to fix this is if an upstream fix comes in as part of a rebase.
