Bug Description

Ubuntu 11.04 (2.6.38-11-generic x86_64)

According to https://help.ubuntu.com/11.04/ubuntu-help/files-rename.html , only the first part of a file, without the ending, should be selected when pressing F2. In previous Ubuntu versions this worked, but in 11.04 it keeps selecting the whole filename.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Unfortunately, we cannot work on this bug because your description didn't include enough information. You may find it helpful to read "How to report bugs effectively" http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/bugs.html. We'd be grateful if you would then provide a more complete description of the problem.

We have instructions on debugging some types of problems at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingProcedures

At a minimum, we need:
1. the specific steps or actions you took that caused you to encounter the problem,
2. the behavior you expected, and
3. the behavior you actually encountered (in as much detail as possible).
Thanks!

it works as described there, do you get the issue on any file? what filename do you use?

Happens with all files.

>1. the specific steps or actions you took that caused you to encounter the problem:

I don't think I did anything to cause this. Is there even an option to change the behaviour? As far as I remember, it's been like that since I installed Ubuntu 11.04.

>2. the behavior you expected

I expect it to do what is says in the Ubuntu website: When you rename a file, only the first part of the name of the file is selected.

>3. the behavior you actually encountered

It just selects the whole file name, for all files. There's not much else to it that I could describe in detail.
