Agreed, but it would make the reporter's job much easier if the error
dialog had selectable text that could be clipped to a file! :-)

this is something to take up with the gtk developers, not us.

Don't you have control over what dialog is used to report the error?
When I had this problem on another platform, I just coded my own
messagebox to do things the way *I* wanted. The default error box is
just a convenience for the simple cases.

Yes, because we should *obviously* be spending our time writing
thousands of lines of code for useless widgets when a simple GtkLabel
widget would suffice.

Of course, it would be nice if the default error box used read-only edit
controls instead of unselectable labels.

That would just look ugly. Really, try doing a mockup of this idea in
glade and you'll see.
