Description David Woodhouse 2003-02-16 20:29:02 UTC
Description of problem:
gnome-terminal inserts extra carriage returns into pasted text if there's
whitespace in the right-hand column when a long line wraps.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-terminal-2.1.4-1
vte-0.10.10-1

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In an xterm with 80 columns, run the command:
echo
"1234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789
1234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789"

2. Select the output of the above command, paste it back into a terminal.
3. Repeat with an 80-column gnome-terminal.
    
Actual results:
echo 12345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234

Argh. I changed the command used to 'echo "echo...' but forgot to update the
report. Should be obvious enough what I meant anyway.

echo "echo
12345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234
1234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789"

(no newlines, only single spaces).

This works now, I think.
