#6030 closed defect (duplicate)

pidgin copies incorrect data to clipboard

Reported by: fluder Owned by:
Milestone: Component: pidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.4.2 Keywords: clipboard



Recently I upgraded my pidgin to a newer version (now it is 2.4.2). Now I have one nasty bug. It occurs when I copying some text from _pidgin_ window and then sending pasted data to someone (it was irc protocol in my situation). For example I copying this text: "(20:26:31) O_R_E_A_N_D_: hi", then pasting it to textfield - data in textfield is correct. Then I sending it, and user, that receiving this data sees this: "п»ї(20:26:31) O_R_E_A_N_D_: hi". As we can see there is some strange symbols - п»ї. Next example. I copying/pasting/sending this text: "AQUA вышел из комнаты". User receiving this: "п»їAQUA вышел РёР· комнаты".There is some strange symbols п»ї, but there is also character set conversion problem.

When I copying text from other application and pasting/sending it all works fine, and user receiving correct text. When I copying data from pidgin window to other application all also works fine and data is correct. So this bug occurs only when I copying text from _pidgin_ window and pasting it into pidgin.
