Description Pete Zaitcev 2003-02-11 21:22:37 EST
Description of problem:

Selection kills clipboard.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
0. Run "cat" and type some garbage to have something to copy and paste
1. Select something ("A")
2. Shift+Ctrl+C
3. Shift+Ctrl+V  <---- copied text "A" pastes
4. Select something else ("B")
5. Shift+Ctrl+V  <---- pastes "B" instead of "A"!

Actual results:

Pastes "A"

Expected results:

Should paste "B"

Additional info:

I do not recall this bug in first Phoebe. This must be an unintended
consequence of a bugfix. There were two or three clipboard handling bugs
fixed in vte for Phoebe-2.
Comment 1 Pete Zaitcev 2003-02-11 21:24:17 EST
I am sorry, I mixed up "Expected" and "Actual" results.
"Steps to reproduce" section has correct sequence.
Comment 2 Warren Togami 2005-04-08 21:59:03 EDT
Is this still an issue in FC3 or FC4?
Comment 3 Pete Zaitcev 2005-04-09 00:21:15 EDT
It still happens.


I'm not suprised that nobody notices, very few people use clipboard
with gnome-terminal. Most normal hackers just middle-button away...
Comment 4 Warren Togami 2005-04-09 00:46:46 EDT
I personally use the clipboard very often, sometimes copy huge amounts of
scrollbacks manually using the clipboard to paste into gedit, and I haven't seen
anything like this.

Please be sure to file this along with reproduce procedure upstream.  We sure as
hell don't have resources to fix vte in RH.  I am only "owning" vte now to
handle bug triage.
Comment 5 Pete Zaitcev 2006-06-30 00:04:34 EDT
This is fixed in FC-5:
