Kopete can't insert new line

Bug Description

In Ubuntu 8.04, pressing Enter in Kopete would send a message, and pressing Ctrl+Enter would add a new line. Now, in Ubuntu 9.04, pressing Enter still sends a message but pressing Ctrl+Enter does nothing.

==== Original question text ====
In 8.04:
ENTER - send message
CTRL+ENTER - add new line

In 9.04:
ENTER - send message
CTRL+ENTER - nothing

Thank you for taking the time to help make Ubuntu better. I've converted your question to a bug report, since what you describe is a bug in software provided with Ubuntu. As a workaround, please try pressing Shift+Enter and let us know if that inserts a new line for you.

I have found an upstream bug report that describes this issue, as well as presents the workaround, so I will set this bug as Triaged and let the developers handle it from here.

Thanks again for taking the time to help make Ubuntu better!

shift+enter adds new line, but it's strange! I use kopete for several years and always use ctrl+enter.

I', also always use ctrl+enter..
I think it's necessary to add the shortcut to add new line.
