On Ubuntu 11.10.
Completely removed all traces of sigil including my conf file, source built binaries, translations, etc. Everything I could find with [sS]igil in the name (except of course my source tree
Re-downloaded 0.4.905 and installed.
Started from Ubuntu desktop icon - The "highlight in BV-switch to CV-highlighted text deleted" bug is NOT there. About version is 0.4.905, QT 4.7.2
Start sigil from command line. Bug is there. About version is 0.4.905 QT 4.7.4
I was starting sigil from the command line like /opt/sigil/sigil - after checking the desktop icon I see it should be /opt/sigil/sigil.sh
as that's setting the LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
Start from /opt/sigil/sigil.sh on command line and it works, QT is 4.7.2 again - the highlighted text is no longer deleted.
Now I just have to work out how to get my build to build with QT 4.7.2 since I think that may fix my minor issue of the right click menu showing Fonts/Direction twice.
