Description Marc Schiffbauer 2011-04-06 13:16:38 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using Devel) 
OS:                Linux

Since some time, konsole or yakuake behave very bad when selecting text to be pasted somewhere else later:

They copy trailing space after lineendings as whitespace make every single line as long as the size of the current window.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. do "ls -l" or "vi somefile" or "mutt"
2. select some lines (more than 20)
3. paste them into another konsole window with a running "vi bar"

Now many of the lines have many spaces after the last character of the line.

A bit strange though: When I do that with a "ls -l" here first few lines will be copied correct and then starting with some (random?) line all the rest of the lines has the trailing whitespace.

Additional Info: It does not happen with gnome-terminal, so I assume it must be something within some part that yakuake and konsole are sharing...
