Description David Woodhouse 2005-06-23 15:33:00 UTC
Description of problem:

WYSIWYG failure. Compare with and observe the stray '>' on the fifth
line of the latter.

Might happen only when I select some text to be quoted before hitting reply,
instead of letting it quote the entire mail and then editing it down. I'm not sure.

Still occurring in FC5.

Comment 2 David Woodhouse 2006-05-30 15:39:05 UTC
Seems to happen when I select some text including blank lines and hit reply.
What I selected gets quoted, but there's no '> ' displayed on the lines which
_were_ blank in the original mail. There is a '>' _sent_ though.

Comment 3 Matthew Barnes 2007-01-01 13:14:05 UTC
Is this problem still present in Fedora Core 6 or later?

I tried reproducing this by replying to myself on a few emails, making sure to
select text with blank lines and ending with a blank line before clicking Reply.
 Blank lines, including the final blank line, are prefixed with '>' while
composing a reply and also show in the received message.  Maybe there's
something subtle about the way you had selected the text?

In any case, this is most likely a gtkhtml3 bug.  Changing component.

Comment 4 Matěj Cepl 2007-08-31 15:21:45 UTC
The distribution against which this bug was reported is no longer supported,
could you please reproduce this with the updated version of the currently
supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue
turns out to still be reproducible, please let us know in this bug report.  If
after a month's time we have not heard back from you, we will have to close this

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

Thanks in advance.
