#14873: Can't move to the end of line with custom key theme
Reporter:  dnaumov  |        Type:  defect                        
  Status:  new      |   Component:  pidgin (gtk)                  
 Version:  2.10.0   |    Keywords:  gtk-key-theme gtk keys textbox
 I use custom gtk-key-theme. In chat window, I can't move to the end of
 line using custom binding for moving char forward. Cursor moves only to
 the character before the last.

 Note, that there is no difference what key is bound to moving char
 forward. Also, arrow keys always work, as well as other custom bindings
 (e.g. move to the end of line or next word).

 == Steps to reproduce: ==

 Place the following text: [http://pastebin.com/3XwMfPWT] into
 {{{ ~/.themes/Ergoemacs/gtk-2.0-key/gtkrc }}}.

 Then execute this:
 {{{ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-key-theme "Ergoemacs"

 After that it should be possible to move cursor with Alt-i,k,j,l keys for
 up, down, left, right respectively.

 Then, open pidgin's chat window. Type in some text, move cursor to the
 beginning of the line. Then press and hold Alt-l. This should move cursor
 to the end of the line, but instead it will be stopped before the last
 character, like this: asdfghj|k.

 == Version ==

 I use Pidgin 2.10.0 on ubuntu 11.10, but this behaviour also confirmed on
 opensuse 12.1 and older.
