software-properties (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

To reproduce

1. gksudo software-properties-gtk
2. click "other software" tab
3. in browser, highlight the address of a repository
4. in s-p-g click "add"
5. middle click in the text entry dialogue which appears.

what I expected to happen: the repository URL highlighted in the browser should be pasted into the text entry box

what happened instead: nothing, and I had to go back to the browser and reselect the URL, and then go back to the dialogue and paste it again.

Thanks for your bugreport.

I can reproduce this on oneiric. But I can not see anything in the code that triggers this except maybe for creating the dialog itself.

Changed in software-properties (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed
importance: Undecided → Low
