            Bug ID: 260963
           Summary: vt newcons: mouse paste incorrectly adds newlines
           Product: Base System
           Version: Unspecified
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Many People

          Reporter: sblachmann@gmail.com

In the freebsd-hackers mailing list there was recently a discussion about bugs
of vt.
At least another guy mentioned one of the most annoying vt bugs, so I think
there is proof am not the only one who uses sc because of things like this

If one marks a line that goes across more than one screen line, vt *always*
inserts a newline at each physical screen line end of the copy source.
This is highly annoying, as it is impossible to copy/paste in one piece, say, a
command line.

Expected result:
The copied text gets pasted without newlines being inserted.
