Description SZ BEAM 2003-10-22 14:38:33 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1) Gecko/20031009

Description of problem:
KMail 1.5.4 message display cuts in and out when the message display panel is
clicked, or sometimes when you move between messages in the messagelist panel.
Sometimes a partial display is given, sometimes the whole thing cuts to a blank
white or grey background, sometimes it is ok. Click on the message panel enough
times and it will sort itself out and display correctly - but move to the next
message and it begins again.

Does not seem to be related to the message content, attachments, sender, etc.
But messages with PGP sigs do seem to cause this 100% of the time?

Annoyance factor: high.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open KMail, receive some messages
2.Attempt to read messages by selecting in the messagelist panel (repeat as desired)


Actual Results:  3. There is no message displayed sometimes (50%)
4.Click in the message panel to try and bring up the display. Sometimes it then

Expected Results:  3. Message should display happily and not disappear on you.

Additional info:

stock from Fedora Core 0.95

switch to another font (Fixed) from "Courier New 10 pitch" for message
display and the problem _almost_ goes away. Still happens once in a
while, and always on one particular message. Nothing special about
that message.
