Description

The normal minus/plus keys are misinterpreted as the ones on keypad, thus always trigger file (de)selection.

Happens on xterm/xfce-terminal as well as on console.

Last known working version is 4.8.18 (debian).

This also happens when pasting a text starting with minus or plus.

Ran cat.
Press +, then keypad +.
In both cases + is printed. Thus there is no way to distinguish these keys.
The same for -, * and /.

Replying to andrew_b:

Did a little bit deeper digging. The problem seems to be the setting
only_leading_plus_minus, that somehow got messed up after the upgrade and flipped to zero.

Maybe a side effect of commit [8b14798cc48bdb8b74a35c5b8b542f37ea4bd9d9].

BTW: i've also observed other config settings got broken. Was there any config layout change in recent releases ?

Highly likely.
