Description of problem:
When adding a folder to the Autocompletion Folders section, the "Add a folder"
dialogue box is placed behind the "Evolution Settings" window.

This makes it look as if the program has stopped responding.

ALT + TAB will show an outline of the "Add a folder" window, but when
"releasing" on that window, it remains behind the "Evolution Settings window".

Moving the evolution settings window to the side allows you to add the required
foulder, and then hit OK, as you would normally.

I have tried this several times, and each time it happens.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start Evolution
2.Tools -> Settings
3.Folder Settings
4.Autocompletion Folders
5.Select the Add button, and the resultant window is behind the Evolution
Settings Window.

Actual Results:  The resultant window is behind the Evolution Settings Window.

Expected Results:  The resultant window should be placed above the Evolution
Settings Window

Additional info:

I doubt this makes a difference, but I am using an LDAP server for the address
book, and IMAP for the mail.

This works fine for me.  What window manager are you using and what
sort of focus settings?

Comment 2 Douglas Furlong 2004-05-20 07:51:32 UTC
This no longer is causing a problem.

I had seen it happen a couple of times, however I was not able to
narrow it down to any thing in particular.

Lets see if I can close this bug...

Okay, I can't see how to close it, so I'll leave it for you to do that.
