Description greg hosler 2003-05-06 10:24:40 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
double clicking on text in gnome-terminal apparently is unaware of where line
terminators are, and concatenates end-of-line with begining of next line,
seemingly unconditionally. This is not always correct.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set a gnome-terminal to 80 column width
2. touch test_file_this_long_1234
3. touch test_file_this_long_5678
4. ls -l test_file*
5. note that test_file_this_long_1234 bumps exactly the right margin
6. double click on test_file_this_long_1234
7. note that test_file_this_long_1234-rw-rw-rw- is highlighted (i.e. the
-rw-rw-rw- from the next line!)


Actual Results:  test_file_this_long_1234-rw-rw-rw- is highlighted (and put into
the copy buffer)

Expected Results:  test_file_this_long_1234 should have been highlighted,
without the trailing wrapped -rw-rw-rw- (which is on w new line by itself).

Additional info:

double clicking a work at the end of the line should highlight thru the line
wrap, if it is a line-wrap, and not if it is a line-terminator.

This doesn't seem to be a problem anymore with recent versions of vte.
 I'm going to close this bug, but if you encounter problems with a
recent version of vte, feel free to reopen.
