Description Mathieu Brabant 2006-03-27 00:52:11 EST
Description of problem:
kmail 1.9.1 (of kdepim-3.5.1-1.2) contains a bug that prevents the address book
from being shown when composing an email and selecting addresses to add.  I've
seen this bug on 3 (out of 3) different computers, so I'm guessing that it is
affecting alot of people.  In the KDE bug tracking system, it is known as bug

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Qt: 3.3.5
KDE: 3.5.1-2.3 Red Hat
KMail: 1.9.1
kdepim RPM: 3.5.1-1.2

How reproducible:
Everytime after having opened one "Composer" window.
Restarting KMail fixes the problem (until another composer window is opened).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch KMail
2. Click "File - New - New Message"
3. Click "Select..."
4. Select emails to add or just close "Select recipient" window
5. Send email or just close Composer window
6. Click "File - New - New Message"
7. Click "Select..."
Actual results:
Only recent addresses are shown, even when "Address Book - All" is selected in
"Select recipient" window.

Expected results:
Addresses from the address book should be shown.

Additional info:
I created a patch for file kmail/recipientspicker.cpp.  It is a diff between
revision 497767 and 516198.  It fixes KDE bug #121337 and 122218. See
for details.

I also updated the SPEC file to apply this patch and versioned it 3.5.1-1.3.

Rebuilding kdepim with this new SPEC file and patch fixed the problem on my system.
