filechoosers auto complete selection stolen by clipboard programs
Status in GTK+:
Status in One Hundred Papercuts:
Status in firefox-3.0 package in Ubuntu:
Status in gtk+2.0 package in Ubuntu:
Steps to reproduce:
Enable a clipboard program such as Klipper/Glipper/Parcellite then:
1. Attach a file in gmail by clicking on browse. A file selection dialog
(File Upload) appears.
2. Write on location the path to a file which will be auto-completed as you
write. Use a filename that shares the beginning of the name with other files in
the same directory. For example, foo/barbarbar and foo/barfoobar
3. When the filename you are looking for appears completed in the location
bar press enter.
4. The filename selected will be foo/bar which does not correspond to any
Problem (copied from upstream):
The problem is that the file chooser's entry uses the selection in GtkEntry to
hold state about "this is what will be inserted if the user hits Tab", but
klipper steals the selection ownership.
