patch to fix bug
Description of problem:
When editing a field in ccmake, the DEL key does not work in the first column.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run ccmake
2. select some field (not a BOOLEAN field) with a non-empty value
3. press ENTER to edit the field
4. press DEL to delete the first character of the field
First chatacter is deleted.
This is expected to be fixed upstream, but not until 2.8.11 or so. It would be nice if it worked on Fedora in the mean time. SRPM-ready patch attached.

This really can't wait? Can't you just backspace to clear the character?
It can, but it's been annoying me for some time, and won't land upstream for some months... Depends how big a deal it is to patch, I guess. (Anyway, I've already rolled my own local 2.8.9-2 with the attached patch and .spec.)
I'll push it out with 2.8.10 when that is released.
Sounds like a plan; thanks. (Especially as 2.8.10 should be out within two weeks at the outside; rc3 which is expected to be 'final' was released yesterday...)
