Description Gandalf Lechner 2011-07-07 09:31:38 UTC
Version:           2.4.1 (using KDE 4.6.4) 
OS:                Linux

When entering metadata for a track/album, there is a strange bug related to the "year" field: After entering the first digit (e.g. "2" when the year is "2008"), the cursor jumps in front of this digit. So typing 2008 results in 0082, or 1992 in 9921.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
enter/edit metadata

Expected Results:  
enter the year as usual

OS: Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.38-10-generic

This only happens if you wait about a second or two before typing the second digit. I can confirm this behavior in this case. When typing the numbers in sequence without pausing it behaves correctly.

I see this happening even if you don't pause when typing, so typing 1234 rapidly gives me 2341. It looks to me as if there's initially a space in the year field, if you click in the field the cursor gets placed (unless you're very careful) to the left of the space and I think it's this positioning that causes the problem - if you position the cursor to the right of the space the bug doesn't appear (for me anyway!) I also see this problem in other numeric fields - e.g. track number
