Severity: normal
Installed from:    Mandrake RPMs
Compiler:          gcc 2.96
OS:                Linux
OS/Compiler notes: Not Specified

A copy of the "|" and a paste into an editor gives a } and a ) respectively.
Copy/paste into kdevelop gives me a |
I have not seen this "bug" in any other application.
Also existing projects I have downloaded does the same.
As you can imagine this is a bit cumbersome since I can't distinguish between | } )
