[Bug 826360] [NEW] konsole adds extra spaces to clipboard lines

Public bug reported:

When I select text using mouse then whole content of visible area is
copied into mouse clipboard buffer, i.e. if I have konsole window 90x30
then each line will be padded with spaces to have exactly 90 characters.
That's weird of course and there was no such behavior in KDE 3.x or in
KDE 4.3 - for example Konsole in Ubuntu 9.10 (with KDE 4.3.5) does not
have that bug. Don't know if it's related to ncurses somehow as 'clean'
shell prompt isn't bugged but any other interactive CLI application is -
I've tried mc, irssi, mutt, aptitude yet. Why I'm sure it's exactly KDE
- other terminal emulators (xterm, terminator, lxterminal, etc.) don't
have that bug also. I understand this bug isn't exactly Ubuntu related
but KDE, but unfortunately I have negative experience with filing bugs
in KDE bug tracker system - I had no reaction - so hope you can touch
some strings there and help to get it fixed.
