Description Guillaume Paumier 2010-02-09 19:13:02 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
* Enter text containing successive spaces in the edit window
* Copy/paste this text to an external editor

Current behavior:
* Multiple successive spaces are collapsed into one in the pasted text.

Expected behavior (previous behavior):
* Text containing multiple successive spaces should remain identical to the text in the edit window.

Also, single spaces starting a line are removed when copy/pasted to an external editor as well.
