I've done that - annoying to do constantly, but it's an okayish
workaround. I've also done that by using the same input box of the irc
client (which is the one that happens to be the most convenient one),
which is even more annoying since you have to stop the selection
within the range of the 10 pixels of width of the last character of
the line, if done carelessly the newline gets selected which results
in the copied line getting sent to irc. Of course I've already learnt
(through many mistakes) not to do that. Call me nitpicky, I've just
done it hundreds (if not thousands) of times and the annoyance stacks

But I already have a perfectly good and trivial patch that fixes the
issue, so why would I bother with a workaround like that?
