O.k., attached is a patch against today's cvs (which contains the first
version of the url patch) which gives us the pointer change but no
underline... as I said before, the latter one is a feature of the zvt_term
widget, but this one has some other problems and would be a real hassle for
just displaying a text. The patch also fixes all the problems related to
clicks behind the line end as it now works with real mouse coordinates
(pixels) instead of the gtk_editable cursor. It uses some "internal knowledge"
about how GtkText displays a text (see the source for details ;-)), but as
this widget has been stable for quite a long time, I do not see a big risk at
Again, any comment is really welcome!
Hope you like the patch,
