I am not sure whether this bug is being tracked upstream. Please see the blocker for details and a patch example.

upstream bug:
Comment 3 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2009-03-16 21:50:54 UTC
adapted upstream patch for 2.22.3 and committed as 2.22.3-r2. Sorry for taking so long. For testers, there is a file on the upstream bug to test if the issue is properly resolved.
Comment 4 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-03-16 23:02:40 UTC

=app-editors/gedit-2.22.3-r1 stable on alpha.
Comment 6 Raúl Porcel (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-03-20 15:23:50 UTC
ia64/sparc stable
Comment 7 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-03-23 04:48:12 UTC
Stable for HPPA.
Comment 8 Alex Legler (RETIRED) archtester gentoo-dev Security 2009-03-23 09:18:02 UTC
GLSA request filed.
Comment 9 Alex Legler (RETIRED) archtester gentoo-dev Security 2009-03-23 10:46:50 UTC
Oops, looks like we need 2.22.3-r2 (read: revision two) stable.
sparc/hppa: Could you pretty please stable the correct ebuild once more? :)

On the other arches we have 2.24.3 stable so that shouldn't be a problem there.

Sorry for the noise!
Comment 10 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-03-27 21:43:11 UTC
app-editors/gedit-2.24.3 will go stable for HPPA with the rest of gnome 2.24.
Comment 11 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-03-27 21:43:56 UTC

Comment 16 Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2009-07-14 07:35:35 UTC
GLSA still unfixed...
Comment 17 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2011-04-11 09:37:37 UTC
All affected ebuilds left the tree months ago.
Comment 18 Sean Amoss (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2014-05-31 19:53:27 UTC
There is really no point in fixing this GLSA since the upgrade paths are now all obsolete. Closing.
