Description Ali Yazdi 2008-06-09 23:10:00 UTC
zwnj(SHIFT+SPACE) is zero-width character that is used in Persian(Farsi) keyboard. It causes  two parts of a word do not join together. for example:
if the zwnj is not used the word would be like this:
which is gramatically incorrect.

The problem is that when typing zwnj in kde applications like kate, kedit , kwite, kbabel and etc. the cursor will jump from correct position in the text to another place in the line, which makes editing and selecting nearly impossible.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce: kedit
2.switch to persian keyboard 
3.write something with zwnj(SHIFT+space) between them
4.try to edit or select some part.

Actual Results:  
cursor jumps to from current place to another part of the line. which makes editing text impossible.

Expected Results:  
cursor should stay in it place like any other text editors.

This bug exists in almost all of KDE text editing applications.

Since you mentioned kbabel, i suppose you use kde3 and i'll have to close this, as it is a pure upstream bug and since development of kde3 is frozen you can't report upstream and we can't do anything.
