Description Fabian Maurer 2022-12-13 04:56:22 UTC
Since 22.12 Dolphin sometimes messes with the clipboard in unpredictable ways.
I'm not hundred percent sure how exactly to reproduce, but when copying/cutting files often the clipboard is different from what I expect.
Example: I copy a file, and when I use paste it pastes a completely different file.

1. Close all Dolphin instances
2. Open Dolphin
3. Copy file (Ctrl-C)
4. Paste clipboard into notepad (or similar)
5. Close dolphin
6. Paste clipboard into notepad again

You might need to repeat that 2 times with different files

Different results from the clipboard

Clipboard should be the same, not get modified on closing of dolpin

STEPS TO REPRODUCE 2 (doesn't always work)
1. Open Dolphin
2. Copy file (CTRL-C)
3. Paste clipboard into notepad

The copied file is often a wrong one
