I am using Leafpad to view / edit files on remote computers. If I log in
via a terminal using ssh -X [...], I observe no issue with the the program.
However, when logging in using "Caja" file browser for the Mate DE (via ssh
protocol), and editing a file with Leafpad, hitting the save button erases
(!) the file content, leaving me with an empty file. The issue seems to be
Leafpad-specific: I have tried out other text editors with GUI: Vim, Pluma,
and Kate, they do not seem to produce this effect, and also, nothing
irregular happens when using the editor locally. The remote computer hosts
a similarly configured Debian system.
Based on these, I wanted to notify you, although I am not exactly sure how
to exclude completely the possibility that it is a bug in Caja.
Thank you for looking into this.
All the bests,
