Package: xfce4-terminal
Version: 0.8.1-1
Severity: normal

In 0.8.1-1, switching between tabs using keyboard doesn't work.  It's not a
matter of downgrading[1] from gtk-2 to gtk-3, as 0.8.0-1 already used gtk-3
and does work correctly.

I know the UI to set the accelerators is currently broken (#841870) but
setting them via editing the config file or by using a pre-existing config
works fine in 0.8.0-1, so that's unrelated.

This bug makes xfce4-terminal rather useless for any serious use!


[1]. Switch to gtk-3 is a wholesale downgrade; in xfce4-terminal
regressions include an unergonomic to the level of unusability font
selection dialog, etc; other programs are often hit worse.  Dunno why
would anyone even consider the switch.
