[Pkg-lxde-maintainers] Bug#966313: lxterminal: Setting "Select by word characters" has no effect

Package: lxterminal
Version: 0.3.2-1
Severity: normal

As announced in the Subject, I am unable to customize the characters where double click selection
stops. It is unclear (and undocumented) if the characters in the settings field should be those
stopping the selection, or those *not* stopping it; regardless, I tried both ways and it made no
difference. I also tried stopping lxterminal (the only instance) after changing the setting and
restarting it, again no difference.

Sadly, this setting is very important to me so this makes lxterminal not suitable as a replacement
for rxvt.
