Description of problem:
If the dropdown / combo box contains a very long list, and then you click on
the dropdown array to select from the list, the list occupies the entire

I reported the problem first to kde-redhat ... since I use kde-redhat on top
of FC3. After several testing, the culprit was
redhat-artwork-0.121-1.0.3.kde.i386.rpm. This problem did NOT happen with the
It also seems to be a bug specific to BlueCurve only, since if I change the
Style to something like "Light Style, 3rd revision", then the problem does not
happen as well.
The package maintainer of kde-redhat advised me to report this problem over
here, since it is bluecurve specific.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Step 5 and 6 does NOT show the problem

What is kde-redhat?
If it is not comming from our offical packages I can't help. I am assuming it
is a bug in Konqueror though you don't specify. If this bug happens with KDE
from our packages then I may be able to help if it is coming from some other
build of Konqueror then they will have to patch their packages.
Closing this as WorksForMe as I have a fully updated FC3 box running Konqueror
and bluecurve which does not exibit this problem.
John, can you at least see if you can confirm/deny the problem using a FC4(test)
box, since that's the (same) version of redhat-artwork Mr. Salvo is referring to.
I'll do that. It was filed against FC3 so I triaged it on FC3.
I can now confirm the bug on the devel branch (FC4). Might be related to this

- Add qt Bluecurve fixes and improvements from Peter Backlund
Reopening. Than, can you take a look at this?
Pls ? Any help I can provide ?
Can you provide a patch? I don't have time to look at this right this second.
I cc'ed Than as he added the Bluecurve fixes that most likely broke this but I
am sure he is swamped and hasn't replyed yet. If I get a chance after this week
I might be able to look at it but it is low in my queue.
it seems the improvements from Peter Backlund has caused this bug. It's on my todo
John, it would be nice if you could take a look here please. thanks
it's now fixed in redhat-artwork-0.124, which will be available in rawhide in
next day. Thanks for your report.
Using redhat-artwork-0.124 package from kde-redhat, and I can confirm that the
problem has been fixed.
