NetBSD 4.99.72 NetBSD 4.99.72 (MKJKERNEL24092008CONFIGX_X86EMU) #2: Wed Oct  8 14:32:53 CEST 2008  root@none:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/MKJKERNEL24092008CONFIGX_X86EMU i386
When copypasting from abiword, nothing happens, or if you copy from a table, the table content is not copied but some of the table cells are.

it is verified on other systems that this is "probably" not the correct behavior (tested on linux debian+arch and OpenBSD)

Create a table, fill in some text.
try and copy it. it will not happen

Does this still happen? If so, are you using pkgsrc or native X11?

Feedback mail bounced. Anyone want to try abiword?


 Annoyingly, this seems to be a real bug. Compiled from pkgsrc-current
 on NetBSD/amd64 9.1 on 10th Feb. Paste from the X server OS seems to work
 but copy in abiword does not get into the clipboard correctly.
