Description of problem:
Under Tools->Setting->Folders->Autocompletion Folders, I have selected
my local Contacts folder address book.  

When I compose a message and start to write in the "To:" field, and
address suggestions appear from my address book, I am not able to
select any of the suggestions using the mouse or keyboard.  Also, the
mouse or keyboard do not respond to any other application of the GNOME
desktop.  I'm forced to Ctrl-Alt-F1 to a terminal screen and kill
evolution.  After evolution is killed, I am able to use the keyboard
and mouse once again.

2. Compose message
3. Begin entering a name from address book in "To:" field

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Comment 3 John Thacker 2006-10-27 13:27:26 EDT
Closing per lack of response.  Also note that FC1 and FC2 are no longer
supported even by Fedora Legacy.  If this still occurs on FC3 or FC4, please
assign to that version and Fedora Legacy.  If it still occurs on FC5 or FC6,
please reopen and assign to the correct version.
