Description of problem:
dpeternell demonstrated a problem where the evolution-alarm-notify dialog had popped up whilst the "To:" autocomplete dropdown had appeared.
It had become impossible to click on any UI elements in the X display. Keyboard events continued to be processed.
Appears to require sysadmin intervention before the user can regain control of the session (switching to a virtual terminal with Ctrl-Alt-F1 then killing the evolution-alarm-notify process does the trick, but an end-user can't be expected to know that)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run Evolution,
2. Set up an LDAP adressbook source; enable autocompletion for that source.
3. set up an alarm due to happen in next minute
4. Start composing an email; start typing in To: and try to get autocomplete to fire as the alarm dfialog pops up.
Actual Results: Display appears to lock up.

Looks like I accidentally created 5 identical bugs when opening this bug, and
shillman duped them back to this one (they're identical, and have consecutive IDs)
So are lots of people really hitting this?
