Shift+Insert (paste) doesn't work anymore

Bug #31354 reported by Martijn vdS on 2006-02-13
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Gnome Virtual Terminal Emulator
Fix Released
vte (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

In today's version of gnome-terminal, shift+insert doesn't insert selected text anymore, only copied text.

I think it should paste the selection or the clipboard, whichever is newer. If this is expected behaviour, I'd like to see a configuration option to re-enable the old behaviour.

Thanks for your bug report. Does this mean that it worked with 2.13.90 and does not work with 2.13.91 any more?
