Description Matt T. Proud 2004-04-05 14:11:49 UTC
Despite submitting this patch to the Gtk+ developers, I thought that it could receive a greater reception with the Gentoo crew, so that is why I am submitting it here too.

This patch enables a new feature on Gtk's right-click context that allows one to "Clear" the contents of a textbox. It is disabled by default, but one can enable it by setting GTK_SUPERFLUOUS_ADDITIONS=1 and starting the respective application. 

Before arbitarily deeming this as unsafe, consider trying the patch.

what is the upstream patch bug ?

in general we do not add patches that will not make it into the main tree...
