Description J.R. Oldroyd 2007-12-14 15:40:01 UTC
When changing vtys using Ctrl-Atl-F1 then back to xorg using
Ctrl-Alt-F9, whatever text was most recently selected in the
mousebuffer is pasted back on the return to the xorg vty.

This is dangerous (and a potential security threat) as a command
could be executed when it is not expected.



This error and a patch have been posted to the xorg bugs system.  Please
add the patch to the FreeBSD port.

How-To-Repeat: 	start xorg
	open an xterm window
	use LEFT mouse button to select some text
	type Ctrl-Alt-F1 to switch to console vty
	type Ctrl-Alt-F9 to switch back to xorg
	observe that the previously selected text is now pasted

To clarify, the patch proposed at freedesktop.org is a patch
that will drop into our x11-drivers/xf86-input-mouse port to
fix this problem.
