I'm trying to reproduce the bug on redhat 7.0
The bug seems to say that you can't copy at all when a \r is in the text. I can copy it, but the \r seems to be taken out. Same result with the 4.0.1 server and the 3.3.6 (+ 33 releases of patches ;)) SVGA server.
I'm not familiar with text widgets or copy/paste at all. I just created an app with two gtktexts, set one editable, gtk_text_inserted a string ending in \r\n (with NULL for the 2nd 3rd and 4th parameters) in the other, and tried to copy.
