Version: unspecified (using KDE 4.6.1)
After switching from RedHat 4 (KDE 3.x?) to Kubuntu 10.10 (KDE 4.6.1), I have a problem with Terminal when I use the terminal-based e-mail client mutt [version 1.5.20] ( http://www.mutt.org/ ): when I copy an e-mail displayed in mutt, the "header" lines (those starting with Date:, From:, Subject:) get padded with spaces at the end, to the width of the terminal. This only happens to the displayed header lines and not to the displayed lines of the body of the e-mail! I do not have this problem if I use gnome-terminal and xterm.
Note: the problem relates to the terminal in which mutt is run and from which the text is copied, not to the terminal in which I run vim and into which the text is pasted.
Note: the unwanted spaces are easily seen if pasting into vim and then doing :set list
This bug looks similar to "Bug 188528 - konsole's history adds spaces to end of lines when copying text", but I cannot reproduce the example in that bug.
Steps to Reproduce:
OS: Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.35-28-generic
I think this is actually a duplicate of bug #188528. See its comment #50, #58, and #74.
That report actually tracks two different but related problems. The first problem(in the original report) has been fixed, but the fix is not perfect and causes the second problem(since comment #44 )
