Description Cedric Vivier [:cedricv] 2012-02-01 04:00:55 PST
When saving, only one * is removed, the others stay forever (and growing).
Comment 1 Mihai Sucan [:msucan] 2012-02-01 05:20:23 PST
Any steps to reproduce?

It happens quite often if you are working on a file already saved (the file selection popup won't show up), then type, press Ctrl-S, and continue typing.

Easier way to reproduce :

1) save as or open a file
2) type stuff
3) press Ctrl-S 'n' times
4) type stuff

The title bar will be prefixed with 'n' * stars.

Thanks Cedric!

I did repro the issue.

This is going to be fixed by the patch I am going to submit for bug 700893 - the parts of the code that deal with the * prefix have been changed to use the new Source Editor API.

This is now fixed by Bug 700893.
